This viral story out of New Zealand was too crazy not to share!
A burglar broke into a home and was so scared he ended up calling the police and reporting himself as the burglar!
Sadly, he literally bumped into the home owner in the dark, who had hanged himself.
"The 26-year-old man had such a fright that police decided not to charge him for the break-in at the house in the Fairfield suburb of Hamilton - especially after deciding that but for the burglar's petty crime the man's body might not have been discovered for days" the Daily Mail reported.
It was also reported that the burglar's screams woke the neighbors!
The burglar ran all the way home and didn't stick around for the police to show up.
He is a known burglar in the area and they hope this changes his ways.
