Beijing, November 22: In a bizarre incident reported from China’s Yunnan province, a burglar’s attempt took an unexpected turn when he was caught red-handed while taking a nap during the robbery. The robber entered a house in Yunnan province in southwest China but got spooked when he heard people talking inside. So, he decided to wait in a separate room until the homeowners went to sleep. However, the criminal smoked a cigar and fell asleep himself. 

South China Morning Post reported that the thief, known by his surname Yang, loud snoring eventually woke the homeowner, Ms Tang, from her slumber. Initially dismissing the noise as coming from a neighbour's house, she later realised the source was much closer than expected. NYC Walgreens Theft Video: Thief Uses Blowtorch To Steal Products From a Store in Queens, CCTV Clip Goes Viral.
