A man who allegedly fell through a sex shop ceiling in Cairns will face a court charged with stealing a number of toys from the store.
A Queensland man has fallen through a sex shop roof during a botched burglary before trying to escape with dildos and a saddle, police say.
The 22-year-old allegedly grabbed a Fantasy Fetish pack, containing a number of toys, after crashing through the ceiling of the Cairns store in the early hours of Thursday.
Senior Constable Russell Parker says the would-be thief also entered a pole dancing academy and dive shop in the same shopping complex as the sex store.
“He forced entry to the back door then climbed up onto the ceiling and then crashed through the roof of the sex shop,” he told AAP on Friday.
“It’s alleged he then stole a number of items and forced his way out onto Sheridan Street.”
Witnesses called police who arrested the man nearby.
The Fantasy Fetish pack, which the man allegedly still had with him when he was arrested, contained a number of dildos and a saddle which attaches to a swing.
The man will face Cairns Magistrates Court on Friday on five theft and burglary related charges.
