A bloody thief met his waterloo recently after falling asleep in a pastor’s house. The uncommon incident occurred Asamankese in the Eastern region of Ghana.
According to Pastor Ansare Nyarko, the 27 year old thief had broken into his house on Sunday, after he left with his family to church. He revealed that the criminal gained entry through the ceiling to steal his properties.
On getting back to his house, he noticed that the outside lights were off and someone had forcefully entered the building.
In his words;
“When we got closer we realized that the bulb that was in the corridor had been removed and the meter had also been closed, that told us that someone had entered the house.So we entered the house with caution, looked at the rooms – the first two were intact – so my wife was going to our bedroom and she saw somebody in our room. So all the Elders with myself opened the door and this guy was fast asleep on my bed and not even the noise the seven of us made woke him up.We had to shake him before he woke up so [we arrested him] and sent him to the police station.”
Upon investigation, it was discovered that the suspect had returned to the house after a successful first operation but was nabbed in his second attempt. The suspect told police officers that after the first entry when he took away some properties, he went to take marijuana for energy to climb the ceiling but was dazed and fell asleep.
