An Orem teen is likely kicking himself for doing his homework and then allegedly leaving it at the scene of a crime.
Orem police said they were called early Saturday morning to a home near 900 South and 50 East by a homeowner who woke to find a prowler in his home. When the 75-year-old resident went to investigate, he stumbled upon the 18-year-old rifling through his desk. The teen then punched the resident in the face and fled, police said.
As officers were searching for the teen, they found a backpack that had been abandoned in the victim's backyard. Inside the backpack, police said they found a USB drive. And on that USB drive was some homework with the teen's name on it, police said.
