(NECN) - It's proof that crime really doesn't pay.

Robert Kuhn, 26, was found stuck inside the roof vent of a former restaurant in Springfield, Mass. on Wednesday night.

Police say he was trying to break into the old Lido Ristorante. The old owner of the restaurant still lives in the same building, and spotted the man and called police.

Officers rescued Kuhn, but during all of that, Kuhn's pants got snagged on something. When he was pulled out of the vent, all he had on was his boxer shorts, and he was covered in grease.

Kuhn now faces breaking and entering charges.
