Burglar Wakes Up a Couple to Ask For Their Wi-Fi Password

  A 17-year-old guy broke into a house in California on Sunday and woke up the couple inside . . . to ask for their Wi-Fi password.  They chased him away and he was arrested for burglary.

 

 

 Teenagers today really DO need to be connected to the internet at all times, no matter WHAT they're doing, huh?

 

 

On Sunday, a couple in their 60s in Palo Alto, California got woken up in the middle of the night by a BURGLAR in their house.

 

 

He was a 17-year-old guy, and he'd cut through a screen to get in.  And the reason he woke up the couple was . . . he was out of data, and he wanted their Wi-Fi password.

 

 

The couple called the cops and chased him out of the house, and the police caught him a few minutes later.

 

 

And . . . they connected him to another burglary the night before, where he'd ALSO asked the people in the house if he could hop on their Wi-Fi.

 

 

He didn't actually STEAL anything from either of the houses, but he was on a stolen bike, so the cops have him on two burglary charges and one theft charge.
