On Monday, the Moscow Oblast SKP said that one of the more clueless robberies in a while ended in failure because the thief drunk a bottle of vodka he came across and passed out on the spot. Detectives said that the owner of the apartment targeted by the suspect called police when she saw the lock broken. However, when the police arrived, they found the intruder sound asleep in the owner’s bed. The thief, a Tajik whose name was withheld by police, collected his loot, including food, upon breaking in, but then decided to have a go at a vodka bottle, which caused him to pass out. The ill-timed drinking bout can now land him in prison for up to 10 years in prison on robbery charges. The incident took place last week, but the SKP only released the news of it now.
