A MEXICAN thief dubbed El Tigre was arrested while using the toilet during a robbery in the central city of Puebla, police said.
The thief could not "resist the urge" to go and was discovered when police heard noises coming from the bathroom in the house he was robbing, the authorities said.
"As the uniformed officials took note of the facts, they heard noises inside the bathroom. They tried to open the door but the man told them he was busy," a municipal police source said.
The robber was arrested for theft and property damage, while the home-owner requested a new toilet, saying "I don't think it will be used again".
