(Newser) – Arrests can't come any easier than this. French gendarmes called to a robbery found the suspected thief stuck in a hole he'd made with a hammer in a shop window, per AP. The national gendarmerie on Sunday published a photo appearing to show the man half-in and half-out of the hole. "Drunk, he robbed a shop but got stuck ... in the window before being arrested," the gendarmerie tweeted, with the hashtag "ThugLife." The 46-year-old man was arrested Thursday morning in the Pyrenees town of Mauleon-Licharre in southwest France. Firefighters were called to free the man, who was then taken into custody.
