A burglar identified as Marius Petrikas broke into a bar, downed a drink and destroyed some properties before falling asleep on a sofa.
The 30-year-old man was found sleeping after the bar owner heard him snoring, Daily Star reports.
Briefly.co.za gathers that the burglar destroyed property worth £21,450 in the Newcastle pub.
The incident happened in August 2020 and the young man was tried in court after he was arrested by the police.
CCTV shows Marius helping himself to a drink before he went on a wrecking spree for no apparent reason.
He was sentenced to 12 months in prison over the offence he committed in the pub. The judge noted that the suspect's mental health contributed to his offence.
Marius will now be released almost immediately due to the time spent in prison.
In a previous report by Briefly.co.za, a watchman named Charles Ayisala, who was incarcerated to serve a prison term of eight years after inflicting harm on the eye of an intruder, was finally released.
Charles Ayisala, 46, who is married with children, served four years of the 8-year jail sentence.
The father of five was saved from serving the remaining four years of his original jail term after a Good Samaritan, Ali Ibrahim, paid his court fine.
In a post on Facebook, Crime Check disclosed that before his arrest, Ayisala claimed he found the intruder who sneaked into one of the rooms and later defecated on the floor.
Ayisala alleged that the intruder took offence when he (Ayisala) approached to find out why he discharged faeces on the floor, and an altercation ensued.
