A Malaysian family was shocked to return home to find their house ransacked and a thief snoozing on the couch with his haul, reports said Sunday.

The burglar remained fast asleep surrounded by watches and jewelry worth 10,000 ringgit (US$3,220) as the family returned to their house in the northern state of Penang. More-over, the man managed to escape when police arrived.

He was arrested later nearby after police gave chase.

“They were shocked to find the living room in a mess and a car belonging to the suspect parked in front of the house,” Georgetown district police chief Gan Kong Meng was quoted by The Star newspaper as saying.

“When his wife went upstairs to check the bedrooms, she was surprised to find a stranger taking a nap in her son’s room,” he said, adding that the family immediately alerted the police.

Police could not be reached by AFP for comment.

Gan told the New Straits Times newspaper that the 42-year-old thief tested positive for drugs and had 14 previous convictions for criminal and drug-related cases.
