Police arrest man dressed in air duct, 'hopping around'

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police arrested a man on suspicion of criminal trespassing after they say they caught him hopping around in an air duct.

Shortly before 4 a.m. Monday a woman called 911 to report someone was trying to break into her home in the 900-block of North Main.

The woman told police she was doing her laundry when she heard someone trying to get in.

The woman told police she looked outside and saw a "white male dressed in something silver with an orange blanket" hop around the house.

Officers checked the area and reportedly found the suspect, 47-year-old Greg Rockhill of Jonesboro, "hopping around wearing a silver air duct."

When officers asked what he was doing, according to the initial incident report, Rockhill slid the air duct down to his feet and said he was supposed to meet his friends there to play.

Rockhill reportedly said when they were kids they would play dress up.

He told officers he thought his friends were "just messing with him."

Police took him to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was charged with criminal trespass in or on a vehicle or structure/premises.
