Mexican police arrested a thief while he was using the toilet in a house he was robbing, The Agence France Presse reported.

The robber apparently couldn't "resist the urge" to use the facilities during the robbery. He was caught when police heard noise coming from the bathroom, AFP reported.

"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, according to AFP.

The man was arrested for theft and property damages. The homeowner has asked for a new toilet, AFP reported.

"I don't think it will be used again," the homeowner said, according to AFP.
