GUESS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU SMOKE? – Your BUTT gets caught!
And that is exactly what happened when a Florida duo burglarized and ransacked a DeLeon Springs residence during the emergency evacuation caused by Hurricane Irma last year.
“If only you’d been vaping, this wouldn’t have happened!”, was probably what Oscar Bravo shouted into the face of Cassandra Taylor once authorities connected him with the cigarette butt Taylor discarded during the criminal act.
The victim(s) explained to deputies that they evacuated their domicile on September 9, 2017, in anticipation of Hurricane Irma making landfall only to return to a home burglarized and ransacked. Not only were couches cut up and overturned as well as bedroom drawers opened, but several items were found missing from the home.
According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution or AJC.com, deputies were having a hard time piecing together evidence in an effort to apprehend the culprits until investigators received information during a different burglary investigation that Taylor and another possible suspect may have burglarized the home. Investigators then received DNA results from a cigarette butt recovered from the bedroom floor, which matched Taylor.
Due to the nature in which the crime was committed (occurring during a state of emergency), Taylor faces a harsher charge of burglary to a dwelling during a state of emergency, as well as a charge of grand theft.
Among the stolen items were six purses, 31 pairs of jeans, 6 pairs of sneakers, 50 chair covers, a DVD player and a piggy bank full of money.
Now if only Taylor had been vaping she very well could have gotten away scot-free.
