A burglar in Melbourne, Australia stole two expensive surfboards from Ross Moresi, who is pictured above. When he discovered his boards missing, Moresi called the police and alerted nearby surf shops.

A few hours later, the burglar sold the two boards to a local surf shop. He was quite casual about it. 7 News reports:

"He seemed really normal, drove a nice car, and you know was happy to hand over his licence details," said store worker Damien Bailey.

The store staff informed Moresi, who went to the local police station to inform them of this development. While he was standing in line at the front counter, Moresi heard the man in front of him identify himself with the name of the person who sold the stolen boards: Daniel Burne.

"He was spelling out his name," Ross said. "I looked down and I had that name written on a piece of paper."

"It was the guy.

"I looked at him and just said 'it's your unlucky day mate'.

"They pretty much told him you're under arrest."

Burne subsequently pled guilty to receiving stolen property.
