Thief Left Phone Charging
A US burglar has been arrested - after he left his mobile phone on charge at the house of one of his victims. The man was disturbed while rifling through rooms in the house in Washington DC and jumped out of a window to escape. Police later searched the house and were stunned to find a phone, that didn't belong to anyone at the house, charging in a socket. Officers called one of the numbers in his contacts, told them the phone owner had been involved in an accident and asked for his name. That led them to Cody Wilkins, 25, who was soon arrested and later charged with ten burglaries. Police say that Wilkins's home lost power in a recent storm and he needed to charge his phone but left it behind in his haste to flee.
