Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, June 25, 2014

A Minneapolis burglar who logged onto his Facebook account from the homeowner's computer last Thursday was later arrested after the victim tricked him into meeting. Nicholas Wig, 26, may have stolen some of James Wood's personal belongings, but at least the burglar was kind enough to leave behind his identity. Wood, who wasn't home at the time of the burglary, posted to Wig's Facebook and convinced the criminal to meet up. "World's dumbest criminal," Wood said. "I don't know."

It was raining out when Wig burglarized Wood's residence so the crook dumped his soaking clothes and got to Facebooking. Before he left, he stole cash, a checkbook, credit cards, keys and a watch. He also forgot to log out of his Facebook profile.

When Wig returned home he noticed the pile of wet clothes on the floor and his missing belongings. He started to panic, but when he spotted Wig's Facebook profile he had an idea.

"I replied, 'You left a few things at my house last night, how can I get them back to you?" Wood wrote on Wig's Facebook page.

Sounds like a gay tryst went bad. Wood regrets giving his wood to Wig, and is now trying to reclaim his dignity.
