Melbourne, Nov 9 (ANI): An 18-year-old Florida teenager thief left his MySpace account logged in the computer of the house he ransacked - resulting in his arrest.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that a caretaker of the home on Sugarloaf Key, Florida, was preparing to remove hurricane shutters from the house when he spotted a person sitting inside on the living room couch.

On arrival, police didn’t find anyone in the house, but they discovered empty drink and food containers, marijuana on a coffee table and an open back window.

In one of the home’s bedrooms, a computer was logged into the MySpace account of one Robert Rupp; he was arrested within a short time, as he was walking around the neighborhood, reports the Courier mail.

Rupp, of Big Coppitt Key, said he broke into the home because it was cold outside. Now, he is facing the charges of burglary, possession of burglary tools and theft. (ANI)
