A man who was arrested last year after he got trapped in an air duct during an alleged failed burglary attempt has been arrested again on burglary charges, police said.
North Charleston police charged Kevin Michael Harley with theft of an air-conditioning unit after the owner of Stardust Skating Center reported that he found Harley stealing the equipment from the business Saturday morning. The owner held Harley at gunpoint at the Spaulding Drive skating rink until police arrived, according to an incident report released Monday.
Harley was arrested in August after a Shoney’s employee heard a man calling for help from the restaurant’s kitchen at 6328 Rivers Ave. Police found and rescued a man trapped in a vent leading to the kitchen.
Harley was charged with second-degree burglary in that case. He is scheduled to face trial on that charge on Friday, according to court records.
Harley has at least five previous convictions for burglary in the second degree dating back to 2006, according to the State Law Enforcement Division.
He also has multiple warrants pending with Hanahan police, according to the incident report.
