Police didn’t have to work hard to catch a man who broke into a Minnesota house.
First the burglar failed to log out of Facebook after checking his profile on the homeowner’s computer. Then he agreed to meet up with homeowner James Wood in an effort to get back wet clothes he’d left behind.
Wood tells WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1nBdpar) the burglar has to be the “world’s dumbest criminal.”
