HOUSTON, TX – Talk about walking into a mouse trap.

Three copper thieves tried to lift some copper wire from a Chuck E Cheese off of 1960. Too bad they knocked out the power to the entire strip center, and when the Centerpoint Energy Crews showed up to fix the problem they noticed a hole going into the pizza-joint.

They called Harris County Sheriffs, and when they showed up and surrounded the place, the three men made a run for it.

All three were arrested and have been charged with evading arrest and burglary.
