LONGMONT, Colo. — Earlier this week, rescuers pulled a man who was stuck in the wall at a Marshalls store in Longmont. He said he had been pinned in there for three days before they got him out Tuesday.

Employees say they heard noises back there for a couple of days, but they didn’t realize there was someone stuck in the space between the interior and exterior walls.

The man, 35-year-old Paul Felyk,  apparently fell in there from the roof … about a 25-foot drop.

But police said Friday he was up to no good when he went to the store.

Felyk was released from Longmont United Hospital Friday and was immediately taken into custody and transported to the Boulder County Jail.

A statement from Longmont police reads … “The investigation has developed into enough evidence to charge Mr. Felyk with 2nd Degree Burglary, Criminal Trespass, Criminal Mischief, Criminal Tampering, and possession of a Schedule II Narcotic.”

He was being held on $10,000 bond Friday night.
