Pawel Adamczyk got himself into a spot of bother during a recent raid in Poland when, unable to escape with his stash of stolen goods, he had to ask his victim to let him out of the house.
Adamczyk, 27, was drunk as tried to steal from a house in Poland in a crime that went not quite to plan.
The burglar had made a hole in a garden fence before entering the property but he later found that he could not escape.
Mr Adamczyk could not squeeze through the gap in the fence as he had too many stolen goods.
Not wanting to leave the wide load behind Mr Adamczyk knocked on the front door and asked the owner to let him out.
He was arrested after filling his coat with stolen items and drinking a bottle of whisky.
The owner said: ‘I walloped him and called the cops.’
