Officials in the area where inmates are held right after being dropped off at the facility noticed a man climbing up in the ceiling Friday morning. Jail director Cara Smith said the man suffers serious mental illness, and this just highlighted some of the problems jail officers handle every day.
Fire officials suspect that faulty roofing-construction work caused a ceiling collapse that injured two people and made 21 temporarily homeless at an Elgin apartment building over the weekend.
The first of two men charged with burglarizing a Naperville apartment last summer after dropping through its ceiling has been sentenced to jail.
Four people were hurt when a light fixture came crashing down from the ceiling at a restaurant just northwest of the Loop Thursday night.
