Lost homework leads to NY boy’s burglary arrest

December 14, 2011


— A 12-year-old upstate New York boy may be wishing that his dog ate his homework.

Police in the village of Liberty tell the Times Herald-Record of Middletown that officers used math homework to track down a boy suspected of breaking into an auction house Saturday night.

The owner said he arrived Sunday morning and discovered that a window had been removed and jewelry, cellphones, video games and other items had been stolen from his business.

Police say homework with the suspect's name on it was found in the woods behind the auction house.

The youth has been charged with burglary. His case is being handled in Sullivan County Family Court.

Maybe after exiting, he remembered he had homework and so sat right down and did it like a studious studen?
