Four are in custody after police found the suspects hiding in the ceiling and inside the exterior concrete columns of a CVS store in Wharton Wednesday.

In photos posted to Facebook Wednesday, the suspects can be seen hiding in the ceiling inside the CVS while police wait down below with a ladder.

Two suspects were apprehended fairly quickly according to time stamps on the Facebook posts. A third suspect managed to make his way into a concrete column located outside of the store by travelling through the ceiling inside.

Wharton police even posted a photo with a “stick man” drawing indicating where on of the suspects was hiding, or stuck.

“Suspect three is hiding within and behind one of the exterior CVS columns (labeled here),” Wharton police said in the post. “We are in the process of attempting to remove him so he can safely be placed in custody.”

A fourth suspect was later apprehended by police, according to another Facebook post.
