Storm Corral, 40, and a possible accomplice went to a lot of trouble to enter the Cigarettes Cheaper store in Sonora, California, on December 22, according to police. 

They bored a hole in the ceiling, gaining access from a vacant building above the business, which probably took a couple of hours, Sonora Police Chief Turu VanderWiel told Fox40. When Corral tripped an alarm inside the store, he tried to escape back up through the hole, but ended up falling through the ceiling into a storage room, all of which was caught on surveillance video. 

For all his effort, Corral came away with a small bag of rolling tobacco and two energy drinks, said an employee of the business, but he caused thousands of dollars worth of damage.

Corral, who was already on probation, was charged with burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime. Police are still looking for his suspected accomplice.
