Police in Utah say they got their man for a home burglary because the 18-year-old left his homework at the scene of the crime. They tracked a USB drive found at the house to Dallas Naljahih and say it contained his homework and was in a backpack abandoned in the backyard. The house belonged to an elderly couple who reported they were woken up by a light and found a man looking through a desk. The thief punched a 75-year-old man and took off. Police say they found Nalhahih asleep at his house along with evidence connecting him to the burglary.
