A suspect, running from police near St. Denis and Jarry around 7:30 last night, learned a valuable lesson.  Don't try and hide in small spaces.

Constable Daniel Lacoursière says the 19 year old eluded officers by hiding in the chimney of an abandoned building. 

What he hadn't figured out was how to get out, found himself stuck and in need of a rescue. 

That's when he dialed 9-1-1.

"So when they, the firefighters, were able to extract the man from the chimney, police discovered this was the same man, who had run away and hid on the roof of a buiding earlier" said Constable Lacoursière.

The man was arrested for breach of conditions and will appear in court.
