Police say they caught library cat burglar

This story from The Times in Indiana

A 22-year-old man was arrested early Tuesday after he allegedly entered the Hobart branch of the Lake County Public Library through its roof.
The Hobart man was apprehended during police surveillance of the library.
Det. Corp. Steve Houck and Officer David Grissom were sitting in the darkened library about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday when they saw a man scuttle across the library floor on his hands and knees, Finnerty said.

\"He was a cat burglar, pure and simple. ... He (moved) like a little spider, \" Finnerty said. \"The waiting paid off. The surprise was on him, for a change.\"
