In your dose of bizarre and hilarious news of the day, a burglar in Thailand fell asleep at a house that he was trying to rob and was ultimately woken up by the police. Yes, you read that right.
According to a local news publication Thairath, on March 22, a homeowner in the central province of Phetchabun woke up in the morning to find an unknown man asleep in a bedroom inside his house.
Unfortunately for the thief, the homeowner was police sword officer Jiam Prasert of Wichian Buri District police station. The officer found the thief at his home in the morning. He had broken into the house while the family was asleep.
Reportedly, the thief, recognized as a 22-year-old man, Athit Kin Khunthud, was at first stalking the area to find a house to steal from. When he finally zeroed in on the officer's home at 2 am, he entered it. But fatigue took over him, and he ended up switched on the air-conditioner.

Only he slept for long. In the morning, the officer noticed that the AC was running in the other room and was surprised as his daughter was not even home. Looking inside, he was shocked to find a stranger sleeping comfortably under the blanket.
The officer quickly called for backup, who in the video can be seen shouting to wake up the snoozing burglar, according to Kom Chad Luek. The viral video shows the thief quite confused and stunned seeing the room filled with policemen, said Indian Express.

It is not the first time a thief has fallen asleep after taking a rest in an air-conditioned room.
In September 2020, a 21-year-old man who broke into a home in India’s East Godavari district fell asleep under the bed of the man he was trying to rob.
The burglar, who was only named Babu by The News Minute, had carefully planned the theft, studying the homeowner’s daily routine and making note of where he stores his cash.
Babu had entered Satti Venkat Reddy’s house at around 4 am on September 12, and decided to take a short nap in Reddy’s air-conditioned bedroom.
‘When our colleagues went there, [Babu] locked himself up in the room. After persuading him for a few minutes, he was detained,’ a police officer who attended the scene told the publication.
‘He told us that he was tired and since the air conditioner was also on, he could not resist the sleep,’ the policeman added.
Officials said Babu was not a professional thief, but had accumulated a number of debts and had planned the robbery to pay them off, according to Unilad.
‘He thought that he would get out of the mess if he just committed a theft. He saw that the petrol bunk owner took his daily collection home before depositing it in the bank, so he followed him and attempted to steal the money from him,’ police said.
