POLICE officers in Florida who were responding to reports of a house burglary made a very easy arrest.

29-year-old Dion Davis was found by officers asleep on a bed in the house, with a bag of stolen jewellery beside him.

Officers were so amused by the sleeping burglar that they sent out the images on social media.

They told followers on Facebook that ‘he didn’t even notice the deputies taking pictures’.

Amused officers ever came up with a hashtag for the incident - #FloriDUH.

Officers were alerted when the cleaning lady arrived at the empty house, to find him sleeping soundly.

Davis was arrested for the burglary of an unoccupied dwelling. He was unarmed.
