Criminal leaves phone at break-in, calls to ask for it back

Wayne Bradley Wade arrested on burglary, grand theft charges

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – Unlike the characters in the movie Frozen, one South Florida criminal just couldn't let it go.

Now Wayne Bradley Wade is in even more trouble than he was before.

Wade, 46, allegedly pulled off a successful break-in of a Hollywood home on Wednesday night, but quickly realized he left his phone on the victim's bed inside the house.

Instead of moving on from his mobile technology, Wade decided to call his phone to have it returned.

The police detective investigating the crime heard the phone ringing in the house and answered.

After identifying the fingerprints on the phone, police were able to nab Wade as their suspect as well as finger him for five other robberies in the same neighborhood.

Wade was arrested on burglary and grand theft charges for the original house break-in.

Charges for the other burglaries have yet to be filed.
