LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -

A Lawrence man suspected of stealing prescription medicine from a grocery store was found hiding in the store's ceiling.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the suspect was arrested Saturday night on suspicion of aggravated burglary after he was detected in the grocery store ceiling.

Lawrence police say the man is believed to be connected to two other incidents of burglary and theft of prescription drugs from a store pharmacy.

He was found by police after a store employee heard noises coming from the ceiling and alerted a security guard.
