This guy really should have left home without it.

Police officials in West Sunsbury, Pa., report that a trespassing suspect “used his own credit card to jimmy open a garage door, then left it behind when the homeowner suddenly appeared and startled him. The important clue helped police arrest 41-year-old Brent Henry,” according to a March 25, 2015, AP story.

The man used the card in trying to pick a lock at his friend’s mobile home.

“Police say the homeowner heard a noise and caught Henry, who ran away but left the credit card behind. Police say Henry told them he planned to take some gasoline for another friend’s car.”
