Burglary tip: Buy a flashlight

A German burglar who broke into a sports club was arrested after he turned on the floodlights so he could see in the dark. Bumbling thief Johann Stark, 46, also managed to switch on the football pitch sprinkler system after he broke into the club in Aachen at 3am.

A police spokesman said: “He had no torch and turned on the first light switch that he could find, the switch to the floodlights of the club’s football pitch.”

Police were called out by the club’s groundsman who saw the floodlights from his nearby home.
