South Carolina police say they caught a would-be burglar in the buff.

Darlington police says the man was hanging naked from the ceiling in a cash advance business.

Investigators say when they arrived at the Check ’n Go they noticed tiles, insulation, wires and metal braces hanging from the ceiling and on the floor.

Officers say 22-year-old Michael Gilbert then dropped from the ceiling and tried to open the front door and leave.

Investigators think Gilbert took off his clothes so he could fit through an air vent on the roof.

He has been charged with burglary.

Police say Gilbert was wasting his time — the cash advance business doesn’t keep money on the premises.
