    The hi-tech version of the one I heard on Paul Harvey years ago:

    A burgler used his bowling ball to break out a jewelry store window, snatched some jewelry, then ran off and left the bowling ball in the display case - A PERSONALIZED bowling ball that everyone at the bowling alley around the corner could identify (he bought it there a few days before that, and used a credit card)

    Maybe one of these days a burglar is going to post in O/R's "holding cell" during a burglary, and forget to log off afterward!

    We had one burglary attempt where the suspect broke a window in a jewelry store. When the alarm went off he fled the scene dropping his Oakland Raiders ballcap at the scene. In the head band of the cap was his Texas State Penitenary photo ID card which he received for a stint there on the charge of .....you guessed it , burglary. This same suspect around Christmas time one year broke the front window of a grocery store out with a Christmas tree that the store had stacked in front of the store for sell one night after hours. My Sergeant and I roll on the call and catch him on the far side of the parking lot. While he is loudly proclaiming he is innocent, my Sergeant slaps the cuffs on him. The dumbass was covered with pine needles from handling the tree.
