A thief fell asleep in the middle of his operation after breaking into a TV presenter’s house in Tanzania.
As strange and funny this story might seem to appear, this is a verifiable incident shared by the victim as per an ordeal he encountered with an unlucky thief.
Confirming the incident in an interview with East Africa Radio, ITV Zanzibar presenter, Farouk Karim said the thief entered his compound by scaling the fence.
The journalist added that the thief stole shoes and clothes before setting his sights on the car’s power windows.
Recounting the incident, Farouk said he left home early in the morning for morning exercise only to receive a call that a thief was found at his home. When he returned home, he found the thief sleeping in his car.
According to him, angry mob gathered, ready for jungle justice, but he discouraged them from carrying out the act.
Farouk called law enforcement and when they arrived, the thief was still sleeping. They placed him in handcuffs after which they woke him up and took him to the police station together with the things he stole.
Reacting to claims that juju must have been involved in making the thief fall asleep on the job, Farouk gave credit to the power of prayer.
He said: “The easiest way to make a thief fall asleep is praying to God to protect you and your home.”
