Burglar Accidentally Film Robbery With Cell Phone
A British burglar has been sentenced to 44 weeks in prison for a home robbery, and he only has himself to blame: authorities say he accidentally recorded his crime on his cell phone. Twenty-three-year-old Emmanuel Jerome pleaded innocent to the robbery — despite the evidence against him was footage he accidentally shot himself: local news reports he thumbed a video camera app instead of a flashlight one during the break-in. While under arrest on attempted robbery charges, cops came across footage of the robbery of a West Yorkshire home from which a gang of thieves stole tens of thousands of dollars worth of belongings. Jerome was found guilty of the Yorkshire robbery last month.
