'Goldilocks' burglar caught sleeping

A burglar in New Zealand was caught when she was found sleeping in her victim's bed, according to this report:

Vanessa Joy Long, 39, who has long blonde hair tied back in a pony tail, proved an easy arrest after she broke into a house on Hills Road in Christchurch, about 11.40pm on June 5.
Finding her asleep, the homeowner phoned police, an option the three bears in the Goldilocks fable failed to exercise.

Long pleaded guilty Monday.
