Police were called to the house in Offenburg by the resident and her neighbour after the woman, who had too much to drink, wandered in proceeded to take a nap. The door had been left open to let fresh air come into the house.

"She came into the house and just made herself at home," a police spokesman from the Offenburg police station told The Local. 

Once in, she undressed, took a shower, dried herself and laid down in bed to sleep it off.

The resident of the house was home the whole time and was in a state of shock, unsure how to react to the uninvited guest, police said. "She saw everything happen, but wasn't sure what to do."

Only after the woman had gone to sleep did the senior consult with a neighbour and phoned for help. 

Arriving officers abruptly woke the slumbering stranger and took her to the station after giving her time to get dressed. She told officers that she had mistaken the house for a friend's.

The woman is known to police, though this is the first they've had to pull her out of someone else's bed.

German jailed for life in double police murder

A German man was given a life sentence on Wednesday for shooting dead two police officers to escape being caught for illegal game hunting during a routine traffic check.

German jailed for life in double police murder

The regional court in Kaiserslautern found 39-year-old Andreas Schmitt guilty of the killings in January this year, which sent shockwaves across Germany.

His co-defendant, referred to by the court as Florian V., was found guilty of abetting illegal poaching.

The 33-year-old was in the car with Schmitt when the officers discovered dead game in the boot, investigators said.

“We are all to this day horrified that a supposed routine control could turn into a fatal incident,” Interior Minister Nancy Faeser said in a statement after the verdict.

The victims were a 24-year-old woman police officer still in training and her colleague, a 29-year-old man.

The young woman was killed by a single shot to the head, while the man was shot four times, investigators said.

The officers were able to report that they were checking a suspicious vehicle and that shots were being fired before radio contact broke off.

When backup arrived, the woman was already dead and the man fatally injured. The perpetrators had fled the scene.

The crime in the Kusel district of Rhineland-Palatinate state triggered a major manhunt, with police deploying helicopters and sniffer dogs, sealing off roads and warning local residents not to pick up hitchhikers.
