Burglars, it seems, get dumb, dumb, and dumber, especially when it comes to Apple devices. The Daily Mail reports that a burglar managed to record himself in the act with his iPhone which later proved to be the incriminating evidence against him. All he wanted to do was to use his phone as a flashlight.
The Daily Mail:
Mr Jerome was arrested after trying to break in to three other properties. Police then found video clips of a house in Marsh in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, which was targeted by a gang of burglars while the owners were on holiday. Property worth tens of thousands of pounds was taken.
Judge Potter told Mr Jerome: ‘Significantly, in my view, camera footage of the invasion of that property was captured on your mobile phone.
‘You, in my judgement, were an important member of the team that attacked that property on those occasions.’
Why even bother with CCTV if you get burglars as stupid as this? Even worse was that he didn’t even think to check his recorded videos to see if anything had accidentally been recorded. BUSTED!
