One dumb home burglar was caught in action after falling asleep on his victim’s couch.
Here’s a quick tip – if you want to burglarize somebody’s home, make sure you’re fully awake so you won’t fall asleep on their couch. This guy learned it the hard way.
According to official reports, Timothy Bontrager, a 29 year old man from Florida, US, was caught in action after he fell asleep on his victim’s couch. The 29 year old burglar broke into the home of an unnamed lady in Sarasota, Florida, earlier this May. Before he managed to get away with his loot, the burglar fell asleep on the woman’s couch. The homeowner found the burglar still sleeping on her couch around 7 A.M. the next morning. She decided to wake him up first and call the police later. The reports state that the burglar managed to get away with some of the woman’s personal belongings, such as her wallet, which held her driver’s license and bank cards. The man allegedly started apologizing to the victim before he made a run for it.
The police caught him shortly after he exited the woman’s house and arrested him. His mugshot made headlines shortly after his arrest for his ridiculous burglarizing. The official reports show that Timothy managed to break in the woman’s home through a sliding glass door at the back of the house during nighttime. The 29 year old man has been charged with burglary and he’s currently being held at the Sarasota County jail. According to the reports, his bail has been set at $25,000. And by the looks of it, he won’t be able to pay it soon.
A similar case, which was reported a month ago, also took place in the home of another woman living in Sarasota, Florida.
