Burgler sleeps on the job

fall asleep on the jobA California man Ruben Ortega, who’d rounded up a sack full of cell phones and other electronic devices in a home burglary might have gotten away with the robbery if he didn’t take a short break – in the bed of the homeowner, who happened to be sleeping there at the time. The victim says he was startled to feel something brush against his feet, which turned out to be Ortega.  The homeowner, who was not identified, chased Ortega out of the house and told police where to find him.

Paul Mutora, was admitted to a Kenyan Hospital in critical condition with pesticide poisoning. Hospital workers said Mutora was declared dead and moved to the morgue. Well, 20 hours his body decided that was not the case when he regained consciousness.  Dr. Joseph Mburu, superintendant in charge of the hospital suspects that, “The drug makes the heart to beat slower and this might have confused medical personnel, but the victim was saved before he could be embalmed.”

The owner of a truck was napping in the driver’s seat along Route 18 in Washington about 4:30 a.m. while waiting for family members to come get him when the 22-year-old suspect, whose name was not released, knocked on the window. The suspect allegedly told the owner he would be shot if he did not surrender the vehicle, so the owner complied. While the suspect was left to find out that the truck was out of gas…the whole reason it was on the side of the road in the first place, the owner fled to call police. Troopers found the suspect walking (not driving) along the highway and he was taken to the King County Jail on suspicion of robbery and vehicle theft.
