Drunk Missouri Man Breaks Into Bank, Passes Out For Hours, Steals Nothing

In what is surely an early contender for "heist of the century," a Missouri man is facing burglary charges after he allegedly drunkenly broke into a bank and immediately passed out without successfully stealing anything.

The incident happened in Boonville, about two hours west of St. Louis. The Columbia Tribune reports that Eric Preston Miller, 35, allegedly broke out a window at First State Community Bank at 3:12 a.m. on July 7 before climbing inside.

According to a probable cause statement, Miller looked to be intoxicated in security footage, and he reportedly passed out immediately upon entry in fact, even as he was actually climbing through the window. He stayed asleep for almost three hours, police say.

After that well-earned catnap, our alleged would-be bank robber awoke around 6:03 a.m., whereupon he set about kicking through another window, police say this one part of the bank's interior, which set off an alarm.

1. This is exactly why I have a strict rule...

... robbing first, drinking later.

3. He busted out a bank window and no one got there for three hours? They should ...

at least give him a toaster and look into new alarm system.
