A burglar had a very unfortunate 'miss-nap' when he fell asleep on his victim's sofa.

The 29-year-old thief had broken into the home in Florida and was found by the shocked home-owner when she woke up in the morning.

The robber, Timothy Bontrager apologised when he was found but quickly left with her wallet, credit cards, driver's licence and cheques.

The home-owner called the police and the dozing robber was eventually caught and arrested.

Timothy - who listed fishing as his occupation on the arrest report - will appear in court on June 26.
