DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Facebook post about a burglary southwest of Houston is getting a lot of attention.

The Wharton police department's Facebook page (see below) gives a play by play in pictures of the burglary suspects. They were hiding in the CVS store's ceiling.

One suspect climbed inside a column outside the CVS store.

Police drew a red stick figure on a picture of the column where that person hid.

Detective Ariel Soltura says, "They say that being a police officer is like having a front row ticket to the wackiest show on earth. This would be in my 13 years...one of the most strange cases. "

Pictures show each suspect climbing out of their hiding areas.

It turns out they were trying to break into the store's ATM machine.

Names of the suspects have yet to be released.
