An exhausted thief fell asleep in the process of seemingly trying to pick the lock of a shopping centre.

Cops in Australia said the man was found snoozing early in the morning outside the complex in Perth with a lock-breaking wire still in his hand.

Police spokesman Samuel Dinnison said: "It appears he fell asleep on the ground with the wire still in his hands and also in the door."

"He obviously had a long night whatever he was doing, and that got the better of him.

"He was then found at eight o'clock, so he'd probably worked through the night and was a bit tired, which isn't a good attribute for someone in that line of work."
