Not a great idea if you're attempting to rob a house.   (Shutterstock)

(Newser) – Note to would-be thieves: You may not want to get drunk while breaking and entering. A man in Russia did just that, authorities say, and he was ultimately brought down by the bottle of vodka he found and drank while attempting to burglarize an apartment in Moscow. He ended up falling asleep in the inhabitant's bed, according to Russian news site Rianovosti, and that's where police found him when the owner returned home, saw the broken lock, and called the cops.

Burglary can happen anytime because criminals are to be found everywhere right? So what's the big deal with this? Of course, basically it's all about your safety!! What if you witness personally burglars breaking into your house and practically you would get hysterical and with that I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have an ample amount of time to call help and most impossibly would be to call 911 right? So with this situation, I came to a thought of looking for some app which would help me in times of emergencies like this and fortunately I found Safetrec and Safekidzone at Google Play which happens to be available at all app stores. Just a click would save me you from harm, trust me. Simply click this links to know more. http://safekidzone.com/#!/page_home and www.safetrec.com
