Thief is woken by police after he fell asleep on a bed when he broke into a house to rob
A thief made headlines after breaking into a police officer’s home, getting into a bed, and passing out.
The incident took place on March 22 in the Nam Rorn sub-district of Wichianburi in Petchabun province in northeastern Thailand.
Police sergeant Sakda Jiamprasert woke in the night at around 2am and heard the air-conditioner running in his daughter’s room.
Thai news site, The Nation, reported that the burglar told police that he had been prowling the neighbourhood for quite some time looking for a suitable target and had become very tired.
He broke into Officer Jiamprasert’s house but then decided to take a short break before ransacking the property.
Kinkhunthot turned on the aircon and settled down for a five-minute nap but the next thing he knew it was hours later and he was being ”rudely” woken by the police.
