If you are going to burgularize a business location, why would you need to bring a cell phone to the scene of the crime? Police: Candy Thieves Leave Cell Phone.
CRYSTAL, Minn. (AP) – Burglars who stole $30 worth of Skittles and Starburst candy from a Little League concession stand in this Minneapolis suburb left behind an incriminating piece of evidence. Police found a cell phone inside the building.
According to court documents, sometime after the theft on Saturday night, the phone’s owner called the phone and identified himself. Officers arranged to meet him and return the phone, and a witness identified the man as one of the burglars.
These guys don’t exactly strike me as geniuses.
