Burglary Suspect Arrested After Hiding in Ceiling of Movie Theater

A burglary suspect ran into a Prince George’s movie theater on Tuesday and it wasn’t to see “Get Out,” or any other movie, he was hiding from police.

The man– who police had under surveillance due to multiple suspected robberies– fled to the Greenbelt area when officers tried to take him into custody.

Police eventually tracked the suspect down at the AMC Theater at the Beltway Plaza, where he was hiding in the ceiling.

Police declared a barricade situation and negotiated with the suspect before he surrendered and was taken into custody.

More than two dozen officers responded to the scene.

The suspect was uninjured. He now faces multiple charges.
