A bungling burglar left footprints, fingerprints, and even photos of himself at a Los Angeles home, police said.
Lt. Paul Vernon said the man kicked in the front door of a house in Arleta on Nov. 13 and started to ransack a bedroom. The burglar made so much noise that he awoke the owner, who had been asleep in another room, Vernon said.
He then begged the owner not to call police and ran out to his car – which wouldn’t start, the LAPD said in a press release.
He then came back into the house, again asking the residents not to call police. The man who owned the house chased the burglar out of the house, police said, and hit him with a gardening hoe while his wife called police.
