A intruder broke into a police officer’s home, crawled into a tent, and immediately fell asleep.
On March 22, the incident occurred in the Nam Rorn sub-district of Wichianburi in Petchabun province in northeastern Thailand.
Sakda Jiamprasert, a police serjeant, awoke in the middle of the night at 2 a.m. and found the air conditioner in his daughter’s room running.
The police went outside and peered through her bedroom window, recalling that his daughter had gone out for a few days.
There, Sakda saw the burglar, Athip Kinkhunthot, curled up in his daughter’s bed, with his housebreaking tools next to him.
Sakda immediately called for backup.
Kinkhunthot, 22, had been fast asleep and was still drowsy when the police officers woke him up.
According to Thai news site, The Nation, 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.
Although Kinkhunthot hadn’t actually stolen anything, he was still arrested for criminal damage, as well as breaking and entering.
