Utah teen arrested after homework left at crime sceneOREM, Utah — An 18-year-old Utah man was arrested on suspicion of burglary after police say he left his homework at the crime scene.
Police in Orem say they tracked a USB drive found at the burglarized home to Dallas Naljahih. They say the computer hard drive contained his homework and was in a backpack abandoned in the backyard.
A 75-year-old man and his wife reported their home had been burglarized early Saturday. The husband says he was woken up by a light in his office, and found a man who was looking through a desk.
The suspect punched the man and fled on foot.
Police say that Naljahih was found asleep at his house along with evidence connecting him with the burglary.
