Burglar Fell Asleep Under Victim's Bed

Bad Idea: Burglarizing a house.
Really Bad Idea: Burglarizing a house while the owner is still in it.
Neatorama-worthy: Burglarizing a house while the owner is still in it, doing so while drunk, and falling asleep under the victim's bed.

DOZY raider Mark Smith proved he was as thick as thieves when he fell sound asleep under his victim's bed.

He had crept past Heather Stephenson while she was ironing. He rifled gems from a jewellery box and helped himself to a cheque book, but the vodka and valium he had already downed that morning was taking its toll.

And when stunned Mrs Stephenson came upstairs, she found Smith fast asleep under her bed. "She could see a pair of legs sticking out," said Barry Robson, prosecuting at Newcastle Crown Court.

yeh righto. By the looks of him, he seems to have not slept for what? ..ever?
TRUE STORY: I actually once discovered a burglar (boy oh boy- is that word getting to sound old fashion or what?!) one morning fast asleep in the downstairs living room on a "lazyboy" style chair. I gathered some friends next door and had them bring over sticks or pipes or whatever and (no its not what you think) I approached the guy with my own broom stick while my "friends" stayed further away. I made the motion and it began. Banging the walls and yelling and I banged the chair that the guy was still sleeping in. His eyes popped open and nearly popped out of his head. We ushered him outside. A steak knife from the kitchen was in his back pocket of which I grabed before he knew what was what. When outside and surrounded by us, he became very sorry and I felt pity, as he was obviously some homeless guy who had found the basement door opened the night before and wandered inside and upstairs and fell asleep. We let him go and he thanked us. A sad but true story.
