A man looking for a blanket caught a thief hiding in his wardrobe at his home in Zhumadian, Central China’s Henan province, Dahe News reported Thursday.
A man surnamed Wu went out to buy cigarettes at a shop downstairs at around 9 p.m. on Monday and forgot to lock the door, giving the thief a chance to sneak into his house. Wu watched TV for about four hours before going to bed without knowing a cornered thief was hiding in his wardrobe.
By 1 a.m., the 42-year-old woke up because he felt cold and was surprised to find a man stuck in the wardrobe where he keeps the quilt.
Policemen arrived later and detained the thief, surnamed Li.
"He woke up quickly after sleeping. I didn’t know he wanted to get a quilt. I failed this time only because of coldness," Li said.
