A 40-year-old local man’s strange rooftop escapades in Stubbekøbing on the island of Falster ended when he got stuck in the chimney of a local museum.


“On Sunday morning we received a report about someone running around on some sheds and roofs in Stubbekøbing. He continued to Stubbekøbing Museum, where he ran along the ridge. At some point he either jumped into or fell into the chimney,” Lolland-Falster Police spokesman Anders Mikkelsen told news agency Ritzau.  
The man fell some six to seven metres down the chimney, where he was stuck and unable to move. 
Mikkelsen said that a rescue crew had to break through the museum door and then cut a hole in the chimney to get the man out. 
The 40-year-old wasn’t injured in the incident, but his ftime in atight spots wasn’t over. When police ran the unwanted museum guest’s information, they found that he was wanted on charges related to his recent release from Jyderup State Prison.  
Mikkelsen was unable to explain what brought the man up to the rooftop on the first place.
