Burglar Nabbed By Greasy Fingerprints
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. If only a Virginia man had followed the advice of many mothers and made sure to wash his hands. The man was found guilty of breaking into a series of homes. He stole jewelry, appliances, and tools, and he also raided refrigerators, which is where he got in trouble. Police say he left his greasy fingerprints on an orange juice bottle. Once they reached the burglar's home, they discovered stolen goods, including 78 bags of popcorn. It's Morning Edition.
