Beverly Hills police drone catches burglary suspect fall off ladder into pool

The affluent 90210 zip code is often associated with a hit television show that aired in the 1990s. It is also where an alleged burglar fell off a ladder into a pool.

The Beverly Hills Police Department (BHPD) shared drone footage of the incident from Jan. 6 on Instagram with the caption, “Burglar caught in 4K. Best comments get pinned.” 

The video first shows a man crawling out of a home’s window before being seen atop a tall ladder over what appears to be a garage. The suspect can be seen holding on for dear life when the ladder slips, before losing his footing and flopping into the pool below. 

The post has garnered enthusiastic responses from social media users.
