When you’re about to make a move on somebody else’s property, the least you should consider is making sure that you leave no traces behind. Unfortunately, somebody didn’t tell this guy the golden rule of burglarizing – don’t get caught – in person or on camera.
According to official reports, an unidentified man broke into an LA house through a side door early in the morning on the 11th of July. During his break-in there were two teenage girls and an elder woman sleeping inside the house. The burglar rummaged through their home oblivious to the fact that his deeds would end up in the headlines later. As he was searching for valuable things to steal from the home owners, he came across an iPhone and grabbed it. Somehow he managed to access one of the video recording apps on the phone and he took a selfie video through it by accident. The short video shows the man standing inside the home owners’ living room looking around for more things to steal.
