NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Police nabbed a suspected burglar after he made off with thousands of dollars in jewelry and other items but left behind his resumé and keys, New York City police officials said.
Police investigating a robbery at the Brooklyn residence of a local politician on Sunday evening found a set of keys and a computer disk containing the suspect's resumé.
The police contacted the man using the telephone number on the resumé. He asked police if they found his keys.
He was charged with burglary and possession of stolen property.
