Thong-wearing burglar nailed by video evidence

You've been framed

Security for virtualized datacentres

A Kentucky ne'er-do-well who decided it was a very bright idea to video himself carrying out a burglary while dressed in only a thong, is safely behind bars after leaving vital evidence at the scene of the crime, Associated Press reports.

Rodney McMillen, 36, of Covington, broke into a woman's flat in early hours of 20 September, "clad in only thong underwear and carrying a knife", according to Fort Mitchell Police Chief Steve Hensley. The woman beat off the attacker, who quickly legged it "into a stand of trees near the apartment complex".

Officers attending the scene found a video camera the master criminal had presumably dropped, which contained footage of "McMillen's family on the end of the tape". The police were able to identify some of the family members and pursued the miscreant to his mother's house in Norwood, Ohio.

McMillen was charged over the weekend with first-degree burglary. He's currently "lodged" at Cincinnati's Hamilton County Justice Center in on $50,000 bond, awaiting extradition to Kentucky.

Chief Hensley admitted: "This is a very, very bizarre case, to say the least." ®
