A pair of alleged burglars in Saxony found themselves headed straight for the police station on Saturday night after stopping to ask a police patrol for directions.

The men aged 20 and 28, who the police say later admitted to several burglaries, stopped along a motorway asked a federal police patrol the way to the Czech Republic.

When the officers glanced into their car, they saw what looked like stolen goods.

The two men were arrested immediately and later released on bail.
