Marius Ionescu, 31, apparently got scared by a noise while looting a house; fearing another robber at work, he dove under the bed and called police to save him, the Metro reports. They arrived to find no one else in the house. "The noise he heard was probably just the family cat," says a police rep. "He already has a criminal record for similar break-ins, and given his nervous disposition, he probably should look for another job."
