Goldilocks Turns Rogue

Associated Press

June 21, 2010

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) – A blonde, pony-tailed burglar ate some food, drank some alcohol, tried on clothes and then found the bed in a New Zealand home just right.

But upon finding a modern-day Goldilocks asleep in his bed, the homeowner in the southern city of Christchurch exercised an option The Three Bears didn’t: He called police.

In court Monday, 39-year-old Vanessa Joy Long pleaded guilty and said she blacked out and doesn’t remember what happened June 5. The judge ordered a probation report to see if Long was suitable for home detention and could pay for her misdemeanors.

The damage was estimated at 1,500 New Zealand dollars ($1,064).

She was released on bail for sentence on Sept. 1.

    lmaoooo. Some guy did that in my former residence. I woke up and found him passed out drunk on my stairs. This was before i was an officer I called the cops and it turned out he was a friend of my neighbors and went to the wrong house.

    Thanks for the laugh. And for the most part alcohol and anyone, men or women, don't mix well!
