A 17-year-old boy fell asleep on a couch while he was in the middle of carrying out a house burglary in Dublin, a court has heard.
The teenager, who cannot be named because he is a minor, pleaded guilty at the Dublin Children’s Court to a spate of break-ins, in Harold’s Cross in January.
The court heard witnesses noticed signs of entry and alerted gardai who arrived at the house and along with the residents found the teenager inside asleep on a couch.
He admitted that on the same date he attempted to get into another house nearby and that he was in possession of a screwdriver for use in an offence.
A 17-year old was caught committing a B&E because he decided to take a break and doze off on the couch before he finished his heist. Breaking into homes with a screwdriver can be very tiring. I totally understand the need to take a quick cat nap.
This story is the perfect example of what it feels like to be millennial. You’re poor as shit and desperate for any sort of quick cash. And you’re exhausted 24/7 from unpaid internships and scrolling past your ex on Instagram flourishing on vacation with their new bae and you sleep on a couch.
I’m one overdraft fee away from being this kid. If you catch me passed out on your sofa with all of your prized possessions inside of a burlap sack with a dollar sign painted on the front, just put a blanket over me and please charge my phone for me.
