Footage has emerged from Indonesia of a thief attempting to rob a shop while its owner is fast asleep behind the cash register.

The CCTV video footage, recorded shortly before 4.30am on November 1 in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, a motorcycle-wearing thief walks into the shop and sees that the shopkeeper is sitting down behind the counter and has dozed off.

The thief decides to take advantage of the situation, so he leans over the counter and takes some cash, slowly and carefully, trying not to wake up the shopkeeper.

However, greed is part of human nature and the thief is not satisfied by the stolen cash. Moments later, he tries to remove the cash drawer full of money and continue stealing to the detriment of the sleeping shopkeeper. Unfortunately for the thief, the drawer slips from his grasp and falls on the floor, hence waking up the startled shopkeeper when it crashes to the ground.

The shopkeeper wakes up to the sound of the falling drawer and catches the thief red handed. At that moment, the thief makes a quick run while the shopkeeper leaps up and realizes that he slept through a robbery. He takes a huge sword from under the counter and goes after the thief, but the thief escapes on a bike and is long gone.

Fortunately for the sleeping shopkeeper, the thief got away with only 100,000 rupiahs, which is less than £6. Hopefully, he has learned his lesson and will make sure to take his coffee on time!
