A burglar with a cold was caught after he broke into a house in England because he dropped his handkerchief. The burglar got away with a TV and a leather jacket, but left the hanky at the scene when he got it out to blow his nose. The crook was caught by police after they examined the handkerchief and found traces of his DNA, which were in matched to records in the police computer.
A New York man said he was stunned to receive a $38 million utility bill for a 600 square-foot studio apartment. Tommy Straub took to social media to vent his frustrations when he discovered his Con Edison bill for the month was $38 million, instead of the expected $74. Straub’s tweet went viral and the utility company got in contact with him. The issue was resolved Tuesday afternoon, with Straub’s bill being corrected to the expected amount, but there was no word on what had caused the unusually high charge.
