SPOKANE, WA ― Police arrested a man, dubbed the "carwash caper," who was found hiding in a carwash's ceiling late Sunday night, a story said.

The Jan. 29 story said officers responded to an alarm and when they arrived, the owner showed them that a roof hatch in one of the bays was open. Holes were also found in the drywall ceiling.

An officer climbed through one of the holes and discovered 32-year-old Samuel Lebsock, who was then arrested.
