One of the most hapless robberies in a while ended in failure because the thief drunk a bottle of vodka he came across and fell asleep, Moscow region investigators said on Monday.

The owner of the apartment targeted by the suspect called police when she saw the lock broken, the regional branch of the Investigative Committee said.

But when police arrived, they found the intruder sound asleep in the owner’s bed, the report said.

The man, a Tajikistan native whose name was withheld, collected the loot, including food, upon breaking in, but then decided to have a go at the vodka bottle, which put him to sleep, the investigators said.

The ill-timed drinking bout can now land him in prison for up to 10 years in prison on robbery charges, the report said. The incident took place last week, but was not reported before.
