Harare – A burglar broke into a café in northern Zimbabwe in the dead of night, packed his loot and promptly fell asleep, it was reported on Thursday.

Police in Bindura town had an easy job catching their man as he only woke up when he was being handcuffed, the official Herald newspaper reported.

The suspect, aged 27, cut through burglar bars on Saturday to gain access to Chipindura food outlet. He then disconnected electrical gadgets, packed up loot worth ZIM$2-million (about R59 000) and then fell asleep before he could escape, said the report.

The café owner and her husband were astonished to find him there when they arrived to open the café early in the morning. They quickly locked the man inside and rushed for the police.

All we can say is that God delivered him into our hands, said Chipo Matake.

The thief has accused the Matakes of using magic to protect their property. He is expected to appear in court soon, the Herald said. – Sapa-dpa
