Thirsty Thief Busted by Orange Juice Container Left at Crime Scene
James Moorer, a 20-year-old burglar, stole a desktop computer and other electronic equipment from the residents of a brownstone in Chelsea back on Christmas Day of 2009. He also stole a container of orange juice from the fridge of his victims, drank it, and left the container behind. What did your mom tell you about cleaning up your own mess? Fortunately, this worked out well for the victims, because the cops checked the container for DNA and Moorer was identified, arrested this week, and charged with burglary. He has a record of 12 prior arrests, plus charges of selling pot. Hence, his great thirst? Also: pulp or no pulp? These are the important questions. [NYP]
