You've got to have a pretty steady nerve to burgle someone's home. You need to be an idiot, sure, but you also have to have some cojones.
Not according to Marius Ionescu, 31, who, while burgling a home in his native Benesti, Romania heard a noise.
Assuming it to be another thief he hid, and rang the police. Cops (doing what cops do) arrived, searched the house and found only one thief: Marius. They promptly arrested him.
‘The noise he heard was probably just the family cat,’ said police spokesperson Mihaela Straub.
‘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.’
