    Good job to the homeowner.Another one down and likely millions of future taxpayer dollars that would have been spend catching, prosecuting him, and incarcerating him over and over the rest of his life saved. I wish more people would similarly do their part for the budget.

    As for the mess, I hope he had tile or laminant floor……..
