Detectives have arrested a Florida man who accessed his neighbour's adjoining apartment through the ceiling to steal items. 33-year-old Michael Hearns has been charged with burglary.
According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, victim Jennifer Lopez, not the celebrity, and her son heard sounds coming from the attic in their Bradenton apartment last week and later noticed tools and undergarments missing.
The son also noticed neighbour Hearns on his balcony shaking dust off himself. Lopez then called the sheriff's office.
Investigators contacted Hearns, where he admitted to climbing through the attic and taking whatever he could reach through the ceiling.
Hearns also admitted that he crashed through his own ceiling upon returning to his apartment.
He blamed the incident on diet pills, marijuana, alcohol, and Red Bull, but admits he knew what he was doing was wrong.
