Three burglars were caught hiding in an attic Monday afternoon by Columbia police.
A neighbor on the 2200 block of College Street saw someone break into a nearby home and called police, said Columbia Police Department spokesman Brick Lewis. Police arrived around 4 p.m. and could hear someone in the house. After a search, the three men were found in the attic.
"A good, 'ol nosy neighbor called it in," Lewis said.
No details on the suspects were available early Monday evening.
