Woman fleeing police falls through ceiling, straight into their hands

A woman fleeing the police has fallen through the ceiling of a convenience store, straight into the hands of waiting officers.

The whole incident was caught on CCTV.

She and her partner-in-crime were attempting to buy soda with a stolen credit card, which prompted a call to the police.

The chase begins with both trying to escape the clutches of the police, her accomplice being Tasered immediately.

He then tries to grab the Taser himself, as the woman escapes to the back room and tries to hide in the air duct.

That's when she falls, straight down into the store where the police are waiting for her.

Both have been charged with several offences.
