COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A suspect accused of committing several burglaries in Columbia has been arrested after falling through his neighbor's ceiling.

Thomas Lashort Bullock, 25, was arrested by CPD's Fugitive Team, and members of SLED and the Richland County Sheriff's Department at a home on Doctors Circle Thursday morning.

Bullock allegedly broke through his neighbor's ceiling at another apartment to avoid capture.

He fell through the ceiling but was not seriously injured.

Bullock is charged with two counts of second-degree burglary, petit larceny, first-degree assault and battery, grand larceny, and malicious injury to property.

His friend, Lakendra Shaneiko Blakney, 22, was charged with harboring a fugitive which stems from allegedly hindering, preventing and obstructing police from executing a lawful arrest warrant on Bullock by refusing to open the door to her apartment where Bullock was located.

Bullock's charges stem from two burglaries earlier this week in the 2100 block of North Main Street and the 3500 block of North Main Street.

In the first case, Bullock allegedly forced his way inside a grocery store and punched an employee with his fist before stealing approximately $7,000 worth of scratch off lottery tickets.

In the second case, Bullock allegedly broke into the business and swiped large flat screen televisions and other electronics.

Investigators will also likely charge Bullock in three additional burglary cases where he allegedly stole electronics, shoes and clothing from businesses.

Bullock is also charged with Resisting Arrest. He was booked at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center. A judge set his bond at $80,000.
