ELMHURST, Queens (WABC) --An attempt to burglarize a Queens business called "Winners Bar" turned out to be a losing proposition for the unlucky burglar after he became trapped inside.
Police say 26-year-old George Romero allegedly climbed into an exhaust vent early on Thursday morning after the Elmhurst bar closed.
That's when Romero got stuck until he was discovered at 10:45 a.m., but police have not said who found the burglar.
