Slovak thief caught in snowdrift

A man who tried to flee cops after a robbery was caught when he got stuck in a snowdrift in Kittsee in the Austrian province of Burgenland.

The 31-year-old Slovakian man tried to make his breakaway in his car but got stuck in a snowdrift and was arrested.

Police had received a tip off from a local that a man was desperately trying to drive through the snow with no lights on over a snow covered pass towards Slovakia - unaware that the path was closed due to heavy snowfall.

The man eventually came to a stop when he got stuck in the snowdrift.

Police who searched his car found two bikes, three sat navs and eight mobile phone which had been stolen in Vienna and Lower Austria.

The man was taken to Hirtenberg where he is being questioned.
