Dumb Criminals: Botched Bakery Robbery Ends With Crook Falling Through Ceiling

A 19-year-old Mascotte man was charged with armed burglary after he fell through the ceiling of Groveland bakery almost hitting the owner and landed on a rack of potato chips.

A business owner next to the Gonzalez Bakery on West Broad Street initially told police he heard footsteps coming from his ceiling before hearing a crashing sound next door. He rushed to the bakery and saw a man later identified as Chacarion Avant on the ground covered with pieces of insulation and ceiling tiles.

Police arrived at the bakery and owner Anselmo Gonzales told them he was placing baked goods on a shelf when Avant fell through the ceiling, barely missing him, and landed on the chip display. Police said Avant appeared disoriented, so Groveland Fire Rescue and Lake Emergency Medical Service were called to look at him before he was transported to South Lake Hospital.

The owner of a barber shop in the same building later told police his ceiling was heavily damaged.
