The man, whose identity was withheld by police in Vienna, broke into an undertakers in Penzing district on Tuesday night. Undertaker Heinrich Altbart discovered the man fast asleep in one of the coffins the next morning. The 25-year-old intruder reportedly nodded off after having emptied a bottle of red wine he discovered in a wardrobe.
Altbart, who took a picture of the napping would-be robber, said today (Thurs) the man caused "substantial damage" by smashing the front door of his office.
No word on what the intruder was actually looking for. http://austrianindependent.com/news/General_News/2011-01-06/5860/Burglar_nods_off_in_coffin -via Arbroath
