(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.

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.!/page_home and

That's why I never give a Hero Award to some homeowner who beats up a burglar. Often the burglar was some druggie who could barely stay awake.
