Today's award goes to an inept burglar in Australia. A tip o' the hat to Australian reader Andrew for sending me the link.
Patrols were called to ... South Plympton, south of the Adelaide CBD, just before 3.30am Thursday morning, after a security company reported a person walking around inside with a torch.
When officers arrived, they cordoned off the area and called in a police dog patrol.
“PD Judge and his handler searched the site, locating a man inside one of the apartments pretending to be a statue,” SA Police said.
The man, a 29-year-old from Seaton, was arrested and charged with being unlawfully on premises.
Checks revealed he had an outstanding court warrant, and he was refused police bail.

That must be what they call a statue-tory offense . . .
