A Burglar Returned to the Scene to get a Bottle of Iced Tea

23-year-old Bryan Lindon, and his 17-year-old buddy were out stealing when Bryan got thirsty. He got an iced tea and went on with his crime spree. The two broke into two homes, and stole a car. While he was joyriding in this stolen car, sippin his (probably stolen) iced tea, he crashed the car into a truck. Bryan took off, while his 17-year-old companion was arrested. Then Bryan remembered his iced tea was still inside the stolen car. He had to get it back, because it’s got his fingerprints and DNA all over it!

He was arrested, and charged with burglary of an unoccupied residence and grand theft. Get more here.
