We have heard a lot of stories of dumb criminals being caught because they either left their phone behind or took pictures with it, but this guy decided to take "leave your phone behind" to a new level. The 25 year old man broke into a Maryland home and while he was there he decided to charge his phone. Wrong move. The son of the owners came home and startled the would-be-robber and he fled the scene without his phone. Needless to say he was caught pretty quickly and he was linked to other robberies in the area.

What kind of robber would charge his phone? I am not condoning breaking and entering, but you would think charging your phone would be a big no-no. I am just saying that if there was Robbery-101, that would probably be the first thing they teach you.
