COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (January 24, 2014) A wanted man was in custody Friday after falling through the ceiling of a dental office in Colorado Springs, Colo., while trying to elude police and then hiding in a bathroom.
Andrew Stiern, 27, burst into Comfort Dental on Thursday and attempted to escape through the roof, but instead ended up falling through the ceiling.
Police say he then barricaded himself inside a bathroom and refused to surrender.
Eventually, however, after negotiating with officers, Stiern turned himself in.
Officers say they were trying to take Stiern into custody on three active felony warrants.
He’s now facing additional charges, as well, police say.
