A burglar who stayed hidden inside a cupboard for 13 hours has been caught in Yelverton, Devon.

Aaron Bradford, 18, broke into a house in the daylight, but when the homeowner came home earlier than expected, the teenager shut himself inside a wardrobe.

The burglar remained inside until the resident went to bed, according to SWNS.

At 4am, he climbed out and stole various valuables including a camera and laptop.

However, the homeowner had already suspected a break-in and earlier contacted the police, giving them CCTV footage.

Bradford was caught near the property.

The prosecuting lawyer told the court: "The householder returned home to find the patio doors forced and items moved within the house. She reported the break-in to police."
