There’s dropping the ball and then there’s whatever the hell you would call this.

According to Deutsche Welle, some dude in Erfurt, Germany recently “broke into a house, ransacked the property and then fell asleep on the sofa” in what will surely go down as one of the worst robbery attempts in the country’s history.

German Burglar Falls Asleep On Couch After Gathering Up Valuables To Steal

Police said the family returned home Sunday and found the 40-year-old man asleep on a couch in their yoga room, but it wasn’t like he was just looking for a place to crash or a night away from a nagging wife, as all of the valuables he was attempting to steal were on the ground next to him. And if the family was rich enough to have a room dedicated to yoga, there must have been some really good shit in his failed haul.

Police arrived on the scene a short while after the family found the “would-be burglar,” and they took the man into custody “in order to prevent health-endangering sleep deprivation.” They said drug use was likely behind the guy falling asleep mid-theft, something that should be beyond obvious.
