(Newser) – No car chases necessary: Police picked up a burglar curled up on the kitchen floor of the Oregon house he was trying to rob, they say. The homeowners called police after spotting the 20-year-old sleeping man. He had apparently entered the home through an unlocked door before searching for valuables, the AP reports. Authorities believe that midway through his collection, he just plain fell asleep. He was carrying electronic gadgets, likely stolen from unlocked cars; he has also been linked to a burglary earlier the same day.

Police say they found a burglar sleeping on the floor of the home he was trying to rob.
