A New York burglar who tried to live outside the law of gravity was nabbed early yesterday when he fell through a false ceiling and landed at cops' feet, police said.

Nassau police said Seamus Troy II, 19, of New Hyde Park, had stolen a car and broken into an eyewear store on Hillside Avenue in New Hyde Park at 6:45 am.

Responding officers were told by a witness the burglar was still inside.

The cops looked but could not immediately find Troy — until he crashed through the ceiling and fell onto the floor right in front of them, a police spokesman said.
