Drunk And High German Robber Falls Asleep At Scene Of Crime

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A tiny mistake has been the undoing of many a clever crook, but unlike an alleged robber arrested in Germany, most manage not to fall asleep at the scene of the crime.


The 26-year-old man broke into a career advice centre in the western town of Ahaus on Tuesday night and completed several trips taking electronics, food and sweets back to his flat, a police spokesman told AFP on Thursday.

But the effort was clearly too strenuous for the man. Returning to the scene of the crime for more swag, he fell asleep on an office floor where police found him still snoozing the next morning."


This is a proverbial case of going to the well once too often. This dude was too greedy for his own good - he will have plenty of time to catch up on his sleep in prison.

A night watchman can get away with falling asleep, other professionals like air traffic controllers or burglars take a great risk if they snooze on the job.

I hope the cops who arrested the young crook let him take a brochure from the career advice center; he`s obviously not cut out to be a burglar.

The criminal was found to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol. The idiot should have stolen only the electronics, the food and the sweets combined with the drugs and the alcohol will put anyone to sleep.
