Sleeping on the job is a known occupational risk for overnight security guards, long-haul truck drivers and deeply bored bean counters. But for someone robbing a home? Yes, in the western French city of Saumur, police say they've arrested an alleged burglar who was found sleeping in the home he had broken into, reports the Ouest France daily.
This is not to say that thieves don't risk getting tired from the effort required. Police say that the man had to climb over a wall surrounding the house and crawl inside through an open window before pocketing some gadgets ... and then zzzzz. The suspect is believed to have snoozed for a few hours before being woken up by police officers around 7 a.m.
Authorities say worried neighbors signaled the alarm in the middle of the night after hearing noises. Snoring?
