Oz burglar had sex with Hoover

DNA evidence fingers sticky perp

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

An Oz chap who broke into a neighbour's house and "played sex games in the bathroom with a bottle of toilet detergent and a vacuum cleaner" was fingered two years after the outrage by the DNA he left on a pair of rubber gloves, Reuters reports.

Jamie Lacey, 27, was "high on drugs" when he entered the Brisbane house in September 2004. Accordingly, he decided not to make off with the silver but rather scatter porn mags around the bathroom and construct "a sex toy from a bottle of detergent, a piece of wood and a rubber glove".

He was eventually cuffed in December 2006 on the basis of the DNA evidence, and duly hauled before the beak. The court heard a vacuum cleaner was also discovered in the bathroom, although the defence maintained there was no proof Lacey had indulged in intercourse with the device.

Judge Tony Rafter, however, rejected this, declaring: "I'm sure that your client didn't Hoover the carpets."

Rafter sentenced Lacey to 12 months' community service, sparing him jail since he'd cleaned up his act, held a job for two years and was now a father. ®
