Goldilocks burglar found sleeping by homeowner

A Goldilocks-style burglar in New Zealand raided a fridge, drank alcohol, ate food, tried on clothes, and was found fast asleep in a bed when the home-owner returned.

But the story did not have a happy ending for Vanessa Joy Long, 39, who has long blonde hair tied back in a ponytail, when her victim exercised an option not available to the Three Bears and called police.

Long pleaded guilty in Christchurch District Court on Monday, saying she had entered the house through an unlocked back door…

The home-owner is seeking £720 in damages for damage to the bedding and mattress, and the cost of food, drink.

We probably could have a Dumb Crook Daily feature.

It’s not a job category that requires a whole boatload of smarts.
