'Goldilocks' burglar pleads guilty
Monday 21 June 2010
A blonde, pony-tailed burglar ate some food, drank some alcohol, tried on clothes and then found the bed in a New Zealand home just right.
But upon finding a modern-day Goldilocks asleep in his bed, the homeowner in the southern city of Christchurch exercised an option The Three Bears didn't: he called police.
In court today, 39-year-old Vanessa Joy Long pleaded guilty and said she blacked out and does not remember what happened on June 5.
The judge ordered a probation report to see if Long was suitable for home detention and could pay for her misdemeanours. She was released on bail for sentence on September 1.
