The above photo was posed for me by a professional actor, who signed a release to allow me to use the image. But it illustrates this week’s case of the funny criminal:
Burglar leaves cellphone at scene, authorities say
Forgetfulness landed a burglar behind bars, police say.
After Wayne Wade, 46, broke into a Hollywood home, he left his cellphone on the victim’s bed, they say.
When Wade called to retrieve it, a police officer on scene heard it ringing and answered. Wade told the cop his name and said he needed his phone back, according to a police report a judge read from in court.
Fingerprint evidence from the phone has tied Wade to five other burglaries, Broward County Judge John “Jay” Hurley said.
Funny for us. Not so much so for Wayne. Check back next Friday for more.
