Prisoner picks wrong victim

A Serbian prisoner who burgled a house during his weekend release picked the wrong victim - the prison governor.

He was caught out when he returned to prison - and the governor spotted his own watch on the convict's wrist.

Alija Cerimi stole jewellery, a watch and a mobile phone from the unnamed governor's house in the northern Serbian town of Sremska Mitrovica.

According to witnesses, the governor spotted Cerimi walking back into the prison waving a shiny silver watch and shouted: "That's mine, you thieving bastard."

Cerimi reportedly laughed and then held up the governor's mobile phone which he had also stolen, before being restrained by guards.
