It's amazing that some criminals can be so stupid.
Before breaking into a Florida home, Jason Braun first rang the doorbell to try and figure out if anyone was home. When no one answered, he then proceeded to break a window and attempt to gain access into the home. He was met with gunfire from the 81-year-old homeowner, who then called the 911 to report the break-in.
When police arrived, they swabbed the doorbell for DNA evidence and after submitting it to the crime lab, Braun came up as a match. It turns out that he took off his gloves to ring the doorbell...the same gloves that he no doubt had with him to make sure he didn't leave fingerprints INSIDE the house. Turns out he didn't think about fingerprints OUTSIDE the house. Police then discovered that Braun was already locked up for a similar crime.
Needless to say, no one is really shocked that this criminal mastermind was busted.
