As if a cat would care if you robbed its family's house. (file photo)

A Romanian burglar was arrested after he got scared by noises made by a family's cat and called police to report a burglary. Marius Ionescu, 31, heard something while in the midst of his normal burgling routine and hid under a bed. When police arrived, they found no one but Ionescu and promptly arrested him for being too criminally stupid to remain on the streets.

A police spokeswoman said that Ionescu was wanted in connection with several other robberies, but that "given his nervous disposition, he probably should look for another job." Romanian police are awesome because they also give career advice. By the way, this story is also a public service message reminding you that if you're afraid of cats, under the bed is the worst possible place to hide.
