Bad Idea: committing a crime in general
Really Bad Idea: Burgling a house
Neatorama-worthy: Burgling a house, while the cops are inside!
Here's a strange story of what-a-coincidence type:
The detectives were in the middle of a drug raid and were just as surprised when they greeted the thieves, during the attempted midnight burglary at the house in Melton, 45km west of Melbourne.
Armed with search warrants, the officers had swooped on the property that was allegedly being used for illegally growing hydroponic cannabis, and arrested a man in his 20s living there.
After the burglars broke in through a window and saw the police, they ran off but were caught and arrested a couple of days later, Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Cassidy said.
