An Illinois woman was arrested last week after police say she climbed into the ceiling of a Big Lots and came crashing down into the women's restroom.

The News-Leader reported that Amanda L. Chandler, 30, was allegedly spotted by officers rummaging through a cash register in the front of the store early Thursday. A responding officer reportedly shined a flashlight and the suspect ran to the back of the store and climbed into the ceiling.

The report said the suspect eventually came crashing down into the women’s restroom and was arrested.

Chandler allegedly told police that she remembered her time in the ceiling but did not recall how she got there. She is being held on $15,000 bond and charged with second-degree burglary.
