Paul Ives of Dartford, England, came home to find a man hanging in the window by his shoelaces! 32-year-old John Pearce, who was holding a hammer when found, tried to convince Ives that he became stuck while trying to stop burglars from gaining entrance to the house. Police though otherwise. Pierce's foot became stuck in the top of the window after he smashed it. He was left hanging for more than an hour.
Now the red-faced 32-year-old thief has appeared before Dartford magistrates in Kent where he admitted burglary with intent to steal.
Paul, 44, said: "The man must be the world's dumbest thief."
Pierce will be sentenced next month. Link
