A common thief has been ensnared by police after leaving a sock
at the scene of a crime he fecklessly committed.
In his quest to relieve a home in Peterhead of £800 worth of goods such as jewellery boxes, bank statements and cash, 27-year-old Ian Garden was caught when police found his DNA on a sock
that was discovered in a display cabinet.
Mr Garden was charged instantly with the break-in and he ended up admitting his part in the theft, shortly before the homeowner returned from shopping to find the evidence.
The thief, who will be sentenced on Thursday (January 7th), also broke into a house last year, with the goods never being recovered.
Last month, it was alleged that Dorian Deon White, a 32-year-old man, wore hosiery - a pair of tights
, to be exact - alongside a dress, a black wig and make-up to rob a bank for an undisclosed amount of money in Corpus Christi, Texas.
