Teenage Criminal Genius Arrested After Leaving Homework at Crime Scene
Dallas Naljahih maybe smiling in this Facebook photo of his, but he won’t be after news of his alleged burglary escapade does the rounds on the internet. The 18-year-old from Orem, UT, was arrested on suspicion of burglary after police say he left his homework at the crime scene.
Officials at Orem Police Department revealed they found a USB drive belonging to Naljahih at the burglarized home. The portable computer hard drive contained Naljahih’s homework and was in a backpack abandoned in the backyard of the home belonging to a 75-year-old man and his wife. The elderly couple reported their home had been burglarized when the man was woken up by a light in his office, and found a youth looking through a desk. The suspect punched the man and fled on foot.
With all the evidence in hand, police tracked Naljahih at his house, where he was sleeping at the time (as they usually do when the cops come by). When confronted with the evidence, Naljahih couldn’t use the excuse the dog ate his homework, this being the digital age and all. Naljahih has been arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a home — and added to our list of dumb criminals.
