Burglar breaks into escape room, can't figure out how to escape
Police in Washington say a man who broke into an "escape room" on Sunday damaged the room so badly that he couldn't escape.
Rye Wardlaw allegedly broke into Northwest Escape Experience, in Vancouver, Fox 12 reported, citing the Clark County Sheriff's Office.
An owner of the escape room — a locked room full of puzzles and clues that participants must solve in order to escape — told the news station Wardlaw did so much damage to the business that he couldn't escape after breaking in.

"He apparently didn’t know how to use the lock on the front door and was stuck," Tamara Bertrand said.
The bungling burglar had to call 911 for help.

We are having our Youth Revival. Tomorrow we take our teens to an Escape House. I had no ideal what it was until Monday and now this. I think it is hilarious.

Guards at jail don't really have anything to worry about with this guy.

OK, so apparently he did manage to get out before the cops arrived. But why... WHY was he just chilling outside the front door when they arrived? Did he want to make sure the cops knew he was OK?

Maybe the experience traumatized him so bad that he felt like he deserved to go to prison. :lol::

He’s going to sue the escape room company for making it so difficult to exit the room. Fire hazard nor something.
Just wait for it.

You're talking about a guy who managed to lock himself inside of an escape room, and you expect him to figure out how to runaway from the cops? "rlol"

aka "Tater Salad", according to the Fritch, Texas PD. :-)

SIA
An ancient society's belief system was that each one of us has 3 deaths:
1. At birth, we have started our journey towards death.
2. At physical death, our body ceases living.
3. The final death is that time when no one on earth speaks our name.
