It looks like a serial burglar's crime spree has finally come to an end. It was quite an embarrassing end.

Police say the 32 year-old man attempted to break into the Calderon Dental in Bay Shore, NY Tuesday. There was just one problem; he stuck in the same air conditioning vent that he used to try to rob the place.

He even had a good excuse too. ABC NY says that when an employee noticed that he was stuck up in the ceiling he told her he was looking for his cat Sparkles.

ABC says that when police got him out of the vent and arrested him, they were able to tie him to at least five other break-ins across Suffolk County.

No word from police whether he ever found Sparkles.
