There are some pretty dumb criminals, but this one might take the cake. According to the Herald, a 22-year-old woman returned to her home to find an intruder sitting on her couch playing her Nintendo DS. The young woman fled when she saw the burglar and returned 25 minutes later to find the man still playing the DS. He fled upon her second return. “When (she) opened the door, a man ran out…and fled toward Black Road,” the report notes.
“The victim’s Nintendo DS was on, and it appears the suspect had been playing it,” Deputy Chief Mike Trafton said.
The perp didn’t take the DS, but he got away with her pink iPod Touch. For shame!
