EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Eugene police are looking for a man who is accused of falling through the ceiling of two businesses in an attempt to steal property.

The Register-Guard of Eugene reports (https://is.gd/qFyNGC ) that the man fell through the ceiling of a J.C. Penney and an office building. The man left his backpack in the ceiling space of the J.C. Penney.

Police say the man returned to the store the next day and asked an employee if he could retrieve his belongings, but was told the bag was not in the store. He left his name and phone number so employees could call if it was found.

Police investigated both incidents, which happened about an hour apart from each other on June 30. A backpack was recovered from J.C. Penney’s ceiling crawl space.
