A burglar wanted on a recall to prison was found hiding under a duvet by detectives.
Marcus Woolley, 29, was jailed for ten months for a break-in last July last year, but was released on licence in March.
But he was being hunted by police after breaching the terms of his release licence.
Now police have revealed Woolley was discovered in Alleyne Road, Erdington , ‘trying to hide under a duvet in the living room’.
A spokesperson for Stockland Green neighbourhood team said: “Good news! Our officers found Woolley at an address in Erdington, on Sunday morning (13 May).
“He tried hiding under a duvet. But using our best detective skills and concluding the person-shaped object beneath the quilt was a bit of a giveaway, we uncovered him and sent him back to prison!
“He’ll stay there until later next month when his sentence expires.
“Woolley was wanted on a recall for failing to co-operate with probation and skipping meetings.”
They added: “Anyone who is released on prison licence must abide by certain conditions aimed at supporting them and addressing offending behaviour.
“These conditions aren’t optional – and we’ll go after anyone who fails to abide the terms of their licence.
“Thanks for sharing our wanted appeal!”
