On the hit cable TV show "Pawn Stars,"  Rick Harrison says he never knows what will come through that door.

In the case of one pawn shop in Arkansas, the owners did not have an idea what would come down the chimney

Ernest Raney said he heard sounds in his pawn shop when he came to work.

He opened the door to the chimney, and found a man stuck there. Michael Wayne Case Jr, 38, yelled that he just fell in.

But police say that was highly improbable, since the opening is less than 11 inches by 11 inches.

Firemen and police were able to pull him up by a rope. Police say even if Case were thinner, he would not have been able to get inside the store because the chimney is sealed off at the bottom.
