Teen Burglar Leaves Himself Signed Into Facebook on His Victims iPad
A Florida Keys homeowner told deputies that he left his home unlocked Wednesday on an outing with his wife. When he returned, he found evidence of a break-in: Someone had eaten a Pop Tart, downed a soda, and messed with his iPad and computer. “He said the computer’s browser history showed many visits to pornography sites and to YouTube while he had been gone from the house,” Monroe sheriff’s spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. “An iPad had been moved, and someone had charged it. The iPad was still logged in to the Facebook page of a 16 year-old-boy.” The teen was interviewed at the school and admitted to being inside the home and accessing computer equipment, Herrin said. “He said he left school and walked around the neighborhood and found a house with no cars in the driveway,” she said. “When he found the door unlocked, he went inside.” The teen was arrested and charged with burglary and theft.
