Cell phone left behind at burglary scene

October 25, 2006

Albany -- You've heard of getting your hand caught in the cookie jar. That may happen for a burglary who left some telling evidence inside a bakery.

Someone broke into The Cakery on Slappey Boulevard last night by throwing a cinder block through the glass front door. The person got away with some cash, but left behind a cell phone.

The store owner turned the phone over to police.

Investigators say the phone may help lead to an arrest.

"What we're doing now is we're trying to contact the service provider of that particular phone that will help lead to the arrest of this individual," said Lt. James Williams.

Aside from leaving behind a cell phone, the thief didn't touch any of the sweet stuff.
