COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs Police Department found a man hiding in the attic of a business he was breaking into early Friday morning.

CSPD said they responded to a report in the 1400 block of S. Nevada Ave. of an in-progress burglary just after midnight.

Someone called the police after they went to the business to pick up some items when they noticed there was a saw blade cutting through the roof and dry wall on the floor.

CSPD said they found a fist-sized hole in the roof when they went to the business.

Officers then found the suspect, Marcus Clark, hiding under building insulation in the attic and arrested him.
