Unable to get over his former girlfriend, a spurned lover drilled a peephole in her bedroom's ceiling to spy on her. Mark Thomas, 45, admitted to stalking when police caught him hiding in the attic above the woman's bedroom.
A court heard Thomas, of Blackpool, had been dumped for cheating but was unable to accept the relationship was over and hence resorted to spying on his former girlfriend. He was arrested and given a six-month suspended prison term and a five-year restraining order.
Prosecutor Paul Cummings told Preston Crown Court the woman had felt "unhappy" when she discovered the dust even though her loft hatch appeared locked shut. However, the woman sensed something was amiss and called the police after finding a pile of dust on her bedroom floor. 
Thomas was arrested for hiding in the attic and pleaded with the woman as the cops took him away. He told her: 'Don't let them do this or I will go to jail', the court heard. The judge, Recorder Neville Biddle, told Thomas he had acted in a "bizarre way".
According to reports in Mirror.uk, Thomas, of Blackpool, had been dumped for cheating but refused to accept that the relationship was over and hence resorted to stalking the woman. Further, the court heard that on a previous occasion also Thomas was caught sitting on the woman's bed and looking through texts on her phone as she slept.
