Living in a grocery store

Here's one for the 'unauthorized dwellings' category: man found living in the ceiling of a Raley's grocery store.

Sgt. Dan Lynch tells KOLO 8 News Now, 35-year-old Matthew Hammar had fallen through the tile in the ceiling and had crawled back into the crawlspace while employees were preparing to open the store just after 5 a.m. on September 30, 2020.
Employees called authorities who surrounded the store. After a while, they got him to come outside and he was arrested for commercial burglary.
Authorities said Hammar had been living in area above the deli for at least a couple of days, and had been stealing food from the store. They say they found some of his property in the rafters.

I'd like to know what let him to this. It's rarely (I don't think ever, really) mere cheapness.
