Fleeing Suspects Get Lost, Accidentally Return To Crime Scene

Sometimes, you should just let things come to you.

Police in Florida arrested two alleged burglars on Sunday after the suspects got lost during their escape and unintentionally returned to the scene of the crime, according to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators were surveying the surroundings of a burglarized Bradenton home when Darien Caruso and James Hardy, both 19, found themselves exactly where they did not want to be.

“They were lost in the neighborhood and trying to find their way out,” the report said, according to the Bradenton Herald.

Authorities promptly arrested the two teenagers, identified by the burglary victims’ neighbor. A search of their vehicle revealed items belonging to the victims, the Miami Herald reports.

Caruso and Hardy are each charged with burglary.
