Burglars usually wear gloves and masks, but one guy in Colorado made a more unusual choice: the GPS ankle monitor he got when he bonded out of jail.
The 27-year-old man apparently stole things from 15 different homes in a pair of Colorado cities, according to the local CBS affiliate, but was caught because, duh, he was wearing a tracking device around his leg. At one home, the man reportedly even nabbed $90,000 worth of goods.
However, prosecutors say they were able to link the man to every single one of the break-ins due to the ankle monitor. The monitors are fairly routine devices used by courts all over the country I've watched many cases in which people were ordered to wear them but they're usually intended to make sure suspected criminals don't flee or break the conditions of their release from custody. I've never heard a judge or prosecutor explicitly tell someone not to commit more crimes while wearing one because, naturally, that's obvious to most people.
