An absent-minded criminal accidentally left his pet Jack Russell Terrier at a crime scene.

The dog - named Bobby by the officers who found him - was inside the infant school which was burgled. Police hope that the dog would be their link to the criminal and once he is identified, they will escort him to the station - possibly to prosecute him for attempted burglary and animal negligence.

Lesson to be learnt: Leave the dog at home if you're ever going to attempt to commit a crime! Anything can happen, from being the alarm you don't want going off, or evidence to your stupidity.
