In northern New Jersey, police picked up three suspected burglars who were believed to have left a crime scene with only $2 in change. How did the police find them? They left behind keys to their car. Police believe the suspects only got away with the money in a piggy bank.

How did the keys give them away? The police used the keys to set off a car alarm. The car had the registration in the glove compartment.
If the men turn out to be judged guilty, they will be living examples of the biblical principle, “Be sure your sins will find you out.”
