MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin man who allegedly got stuck in an air vent for 10 hours while trying to break into a Milwaukee veterinary clinic appeared in court Wednesday.
19-year-old Shane Ray of Phelps was charged Wednesday morning with a felony count of attempted burglary. There was no immediate word on his bond, or when a preliminary hearing would take place.
Prosecutors said Ray was high on prescription drugs when he tried breaking into Milwaukee's Small Animal Hospital on Sunday night to steal more drugs.
Police said he could not find a window to break, so he went on the roof and crawled through an air vent before he got stuck on the lower level of the building.
Employees said they heard Ray screaming for help when they arrived for work on Monday. Ray said he went nude because he didn't want tear his clothes on the screws inside the vent.
