A burglar in Cedar Falls apparently got more than he bargained for when broke into an occupied hotel room early today. Cedar Falls police received a 9-1-1 call just before 5:30 this morning from the Extended Stay Inn. The caller said that a man had broken into their hotel room and they were holding the man.
When officers arrived, the occupant of the room had the suspected burglar pinned to the ground. The suspect was identified as 39-year-old Anthony Wayne Sallis and was held until officers could put him in handcuffs. Sallis apparently lives in another room a the hotel and is charged with second degree burglary.
