Number 72

 A thief who made himself comfortable

An elderly couple had a shock last week when they returned from their holiday. Just like in the children’s story, Goldilocks, someone had broken into their home and was asleep in their bed.

When they first opened the door they noticed that someone had cooked a meal in the kitchen. All the dishes were washed and neatly stacked on the table. They also noticed that someone had washed some clothes and put them on the washing line to dry. When they went into the bathroom they saw that someone had just had a bath and there was a wet towel beside the bath. On entering the bedroom they found a man fast asleep in their bed. The man was arrested by the police has been charged with burglary and theft.
