A burglar in Vancouver, Washington had to call 911 on Sunday after getting stuck in an escape room, struggling to "escape" from his burglary attempt.
According to KOIN-TV, Rye Daniel Wardlaw was charged with second-degree burglary after the Clark County Sheriff's Office was able to link Wardlaw to the burglary.
According to KOIN's report, Wardlaw allegedly broke into the NW Escape Experience by using a backdoor. After allegedly taking a cellphone, TV remote and a beer from the fridge, the burglar broke the back door and couldn't escape.
After nearly 30 minutes inside of the escape room, he called 911. Wardlaw reportedly gave a false address and claimed his home was being broken into.
"The sheriff said he had a burrito and he was settling in to have a breakfast and a beer I guess and then got scared because he couldn't get out," Rob Bertrand, owner of NW Escape Experience, told KOIN.
Although he had called authorities, he figured out a way to escape but didn't get far. Deputies found Wardlaw in a strip mall shortly after the 911 call.
Escape rooms are an activity that involves solving puzzles to figure out how to "escape" from a room.
