TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (316)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of The Register (from Monday, April 11; link good at time of posting):
The Sun has hailed 48-year-old Kenneth Morgan as Britain's "thickest burglar", after he abandoned his passport at the scene of a break-in.

The career criminal was forced to beat a retreat from a property in Acton, West London, when the owner returned home and caught him in the act. He made good his escape through the kitchen window, but left a backpack containing the vital clue to his identity.

Just to make absolutely certain of a quick cuffing, Morgan also left his mobile phone, keys, prison ID card bearing his photo, "his birth certificate and a tenancy agreement with his signature".

The police cracked the case in "seconds", the Sun notes.
