A 23-year-old from Spain woke up one day and decided that robbing a mortuary was an intelligent thing to do. Shockingly enough, as it turns out… it wasn’t.
Neighbors of the funeral home called in a disturbance to police when they heard the doors being forced open during the middle of the night.
Apparently, the sounds of the police arriving terrified the young would-be-thief into playing possum, and he laid out on the table normally used in wake viewings.
“The custom here is for dead people to be dressed in suits, in nice clothes that look presentable. This guy was in everyday clothes that were wrinkled and dirty,” a police spokeswoman.
“He was trying to fake being dead, but he was breathing.”
The funeral home said it was mystified as to what the man wanted, as there were no valuables or cash in the funeral parlour.
Personally, if I were going to go to all the trouble of robbing a business, I would at least make sure they were doing business with the living! The guy should have tried to pull off the zombie thing, as well. He is lying in a funeral parlor, and they are already suspicious of him. He might as well sit up in a jerky manner, stare at the nearest person and exclaim, “BRAINS!”.
