When Breaking Into Homes, If You Must Check Email, Remember To Logout

from the just-a-tip dept

Breaking into someone’s home just isn’t what it used to be. A couple months ago we wrote about life imitating an obscure foreign movie, when a man broke into a woman’s house to fix her computer (and to steal her underwear). The latest is a story of a guy who was breaking into homes to steal some clothes, but also to take a shower, cook some food, watch TV… and even check his email. It’s that last bit that may have gotten him into trouble. Apparently, in one of the homes, he forgot to logout of his Yahoo mail account. Of course, it’s not clear if leaving his email account open had anything to do with his eventual capture earlier today.
