A couple in Moers, Germany, had an unusual wake-up call when they discovered a drunken burglar sound asleep next to them in their double bed. The 28 year old thief was found naked and snoring, remaining that way until the police arrived.

The burglar had broken into the house through the bathroom window and found a bottle of rare Scotch whiskey, half of which he consumed. In his now-drunken state, he went to the toilet, got undressed and jumped into bed.

The male resident said that he felt "startled", but initially assumed that it was his wife being restless. Soon after he realised that the loud snoring and the physical presence was not his wife, but the uninvited guest snuggling up to him.
