Burglar used Eldin B.’s (21) refrigerator – he left valuables behind
“He ate a piece and a half of my homemade lasagna!”
On Tuesday, a man broke into a family home in Sonceboz BE while the residents were at home. The burglar goes into the kitchen – and eats lasagna. He ignores the expensive electronic devices and watches.
Eldin B. and his girlfriend Chiara W. had their home broken into.
Today the two laugh at the hungry lasagna man who broke into their home but didn’t steal anything. But on Tuesday afternoon, Eldin B.* (21) and his girlfriend Chiara W.* (21) were really scared.
“I was just coming home from the pharmacy and was walking downstairs to my girlfriend’s when she suddenly told me she heard noises, there must be someone in the house,” says Eldin B. “When I checked my cell phone, there was indeed an alarm downstairs.”
Police pick up burglars in the village
The young man goes to look – and meets a stranger at the top of the stairs in the hallway. “I spoke to him, but he didn’t answer. Then he staggered towards me, his eyes as big as a plate like a zombie. Because I didn’t know what to expect, I fled to the bunker with my girlfriend and immediately called the police.” The two barricade themselves in their panic room in the stately family home in Sonceboz BE.
The girlfriend says: “I was pretty scared at that moment. My boyfriend even put a knife in my hand so I could have defended myself if I had to.”
The police come immediately, but the stranger is already gone. A patrol picks up the burglar with the conspicuous pink training pants a little later in the village. “He is said to have just walked around,” says Eldin B., “as if nothing had happened.” The Bern cantonal police confirmed the operation: “The man is accused of sneaking into a total of three houses and intending to sneak into a fourth,” says Blick.
On a tour of the house, the two residents quickly notice that nothing is missing. “There were expensive watches lying around, my laptop, the car keys – he could have taken everything! Instead, I discovered a plate of lasagna that was previously in the fridge on the kitchen counter. He ate a piece and a half of my lasagna!”
“Would have even warmed him up the lasagne”
Perhaps the man simply smelled the lasagne from the street, Eldin B. believes: “I made it myself, it was very fine.” Eldin B. and girlfriend Chiara W. can laugh about the incident the next day. Chiara W.: «It’s actually rather funny. Because nothing got away and nothing happened, you can take it with humor afterwards. » Eldin B. adds: “He did destroy a lock, but we were able to have it replaced, it’s covered by the insurance company. So we didn’t do any harm.”
Eldin B. treats the hungry burglar to his meal. ‘But he could have just rung the bell. I would even have warmed them up for him!’
