A burglar in Benesti, Romania called the police on himself when he heard a strange noise in a house he had broken into.
Marius Ionescu, 31, called the police while hiding under a bed. He apparently thought that another burglar was in the house after hearing a strange noise that was most likely just the family pet. Police did not find anyone else in the house besides the burglar when they arrived on the scene.
“The noise he heard was probably just the family cat,” said police spokesperson Mihaela Straub.
Straub recommended that the burglar might want to consider another profession.
“He already has a criminal record for similar break-ins, and given his nervous disposition, he probably should look for another job. He’s likely to have a lot of time inside jail to consider things.”
