Randy Cliett Is A Slow Learner - Jailed After He Became Stuck In Air Vent While Burglarizing Same Store He Was Caught Burglarizing Before
Randy Cliett Jail Booking Report
Haines City, Florida (The Weekly Vice) - Randy Cliett, a 49-year-old Florida man who recently completed a 5-year prison sentence for burglarizing a supermarket, was arrested again when he became stuck in an air shaft while attempting to burglarize the SAME supermarket.
According to Haines City police, police were dispatched Tuesday morning after a witness reported hearing cries for help coming from the rooftop of La Placita Mexico Supermarket.
Investigators say Cliett spent Monday night stuck in a rooftop air shaft while he attempted to shimey down an air shaft leading into the store.
Cliett, who has been convicted 14 times for burglary, drug possession and domestic battery was released from prison just two months ago. His release came after serving five-years for burglarizing the same supermarket years earlier.
When emergency responders arrived on scene, they discovered Cliett lodged inside the air vent feet first. A firefighter pulled Cliett from the vent before turning him over to police.
Cliett was booked into the Polk County Jail on charges of burglary, criminal damage to property, possession of burglary tools and criminal mischief.
The Weekly Vice Opinion:
I've posted just a few of Cliett's mugshots - taken from 1994 until present. It's interesting to see what wasting away in prison has done to the man over the past 15 years.
