Malaysian police have arrested a thief who fell asleep after broking into a house.

The burglar helped himself to some homemade cookies and promptly dozed off on a bed, scaring the occupants when they returned home from weekend shopping.

V. Sathya, 39, and his family had gone shopping for Chinese New Year goods. His 9-year-old son was shocked when he entered his room to see a man sleeping in his bed.

“He shouted and ran out of his room. Even then the burglar did not wake up and carried on sleeping while holding on to one of my wife’s purses,” said Sathya. [Thestar]

The family then called the police, who shook the burglar from his slumber and took him away.

Seriously, how tired (or stupid) could he be?
