SUMMIT COUNTY, OH – A suspected Ohio convenience store burglar is under arrest after reportedly being caught red-handed by cops, with some pretty incriminating surveillance video to back them up.

On the tape, 41-year-old Jody Riggs is seen wiggling his way into a closed D-Mart in Springfield, Ohio from the ceiling.

Owners Eli and Souad Cherfan say that after he grabbed and sipped a beer, he went through the ceiling again to get to the cash register and cigarettes.

Little did Riggs know, cops were already on their way.  He is now being held on charges of felony breaking and entering and vandalism.
