PARIS–A burglar who cracked open a bottle of champagne to celebrate his caper was surprised by French police while watching television and drinking bubbly in the house he had just robbed.

The owners of the house called police on Saturday when they returned to their home in the medieval town of Provins southeast of Paris, to find their shutters drawn, which they had left open.
