Thief falls asleep in Man of God's bedroom during robbery
The 27-year-old suspect was found in a deep sleep in a Seventh Day Adventist pastor’s bedroom after he had broken into the room through the ceiling of the house to make away with some properties.
A report by StarrFMOnline.com stated that Pastor Asare Nyarko, in narrating the story to the police, revealed that his family had returned to the church to realise that all the lights in the house had been turned off.
According to Mr Nyarko, he quickly reported the matter to the local police after he noticed that someone had forcefully entered the house.
However, the police reportedly couldn’t escort the family back home but advised them to take pictures of the evidence of the burglary.
Pastor Asare continued that he had returned to the house, accompanied by some elders from his church only to find the suspect deeply asleep in his bedroom.
“When we got closer we realised 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.”
According to the suspect, he had apparently returned to the house after a successful first operation but unfortunately slept off during his second attempt.
On his first entry, he took away some properties, went to smoke marijuana to gain energy to climb through the ceiling but was dazed and fell asleep in the process.
