BENESTI (Metro): A scaredy-cat burglar was arrested after he became frightened when he heard a strange noise and rang police from under a bed. Marius Ionescu, 31, mistook the family cat for another burglar in the house in Benesti, Romania, causing him to head for cover and wait for the authorities to come and rescue him. When the police turned up they did not discover anyone else in the house except for the burglar himself and promptly arrested him. ‘The noise he heard was probably just the family cat,’ said police spokesperson Mihaela Straub.
