Caught with his pants down! Alleged burglar found dangling on school fence by his trousers

This is the embarrassing moment an alleged burglar was literally caught with his pants down.

The suspected thief was spotted hanging upside down on the fence of the Miles Elementary School in Tuscon, Arizona, by his trousers.

With his legs on full display, the man’s trousers had been pulled down as he made an apparent bungling exit from the empty building.

Witnesses claim the suspect was seen trying to open doors to the school at around 10.30 on Friday morning – the day of a school holiday.

He apparently tried to make a run for it when he realised he’d been spotted but slipped and got his trousers stuck on the spiked fence, leaving him in the precarious position.

Jesse Sensibar, who took a photo of the man, wrote on Facebook: “One more reason not to jump fences in baggy pants.

“I saw this homie hanging around at the Miles School this morning when I was rolling eastbound on Broadway Avenue. I was going to help him off the fence but by the time I got back around the block the cops were rolling up two cars deep.

“I don’t know what his story was but it must not have been good enough, fifteen minutes later when I went back by the other direction going home he was cuffed up in the backseat. He smiled for the camera.”

Michelle Valenzuela, spokesperson for Tucson Unified School District, confirmed the incident, however Tucson Police Department told Tucson News Now they had “no record of such an incident” taking place.
