An alleged thief has been busted after police officials discovered him hiding inside his mother’s refrigerator.
31-year-old Eduard Bulgakov, failed to appear in court as scheduled after he was charged with theft in Yekaterinburg, Russia.
This prompted the legal council to order police officials to hunt and arrest him.
The officials stormed the house which the man shared with his mother and on questioning, the old woman claimed she was unaware of her son’s whereabouts.
The police officers were waiting for his arrival outside when after some moment, a delivery man came to deliver two large pizza’s in the house.
World Wide Weird News reports said that the officers knew that the woman was not going to eat both pizza pies herself and suspected that she was not home alone as she claimed.
According to a spokesperson of the police, Kuzma Alekseeva when the officers went back into the house and discovered that the pizzas were finished, they launched a search in the house but yet did not see the man.
However, they became more suspicious by the woman’s reaction when they asked her why she did not put the remaining pizza inside the refrigerator to preserve it.
It was at that juncture that they flung open the refrigerator door only to discover that the suspect has been hiding inside it all along.
He came out of the refrigerator and was allowed to take a hot drink before the officers arrested and led him away.
