Australian Cops and Robbers

From the crime blotter down under comes this story of good and bad timing.


Two Australian burglars broke into a house - only to find it full of police officers staging a drugs raid.

The pair jemmied open a window to get into the house in a midnight raid in Melbourne, reports the Herald Sun.

But they had been beaten to it by police officers who had just burst through the door to search for drugs.

The property was allegedly being used for growing hydroponic cannabis, and the detectives were on a raid to arrest the resident, a man in his 20s.

The startled burglars fled, but were caught a couple of days later, said Det Sen-Sgt Paul Cassidy, of Melton detectives.

"It is unusual," he said, but declined to comment on whether the burglars had been after money or drugs.

The three arrested men, all in their 20s, have been remanded to appear in court.
And you thought this could only happen in America.
