Teen Burglar Arrested After Forgetting to Log Out of Myspace

myspaceA Florida teen was arrested for breaking into and burglarizing a home while the owners were away. The interesting part of this case is how the teen got arrested: he was identified after forgetting to logout of his MySpace account, which he checked from the victim’s home computer.

With the home owner away, a caretaker came to check on the house when he noticed that there was someone inside. He quickly called the police, but the burglar was no longer around when the officers arrived.

What they did find was almost as good as getting the teen himself: his Myspace account with photos and identity. The teen was surfing the popular social networking site from the victim’s computer and forgot to log out before leaving the house.

Police soon found the teen walking the streets with two screwdrivers in his pocket, which he used to break into the home. When asked about why he was in the house he simply replied that it was cold outside.

To make sure that your home is safe from professional criminals or the random burglar such as this teen, be sure to install a home security system of some sort and burglar-proof your home when going away for extended periods.
