His parents must be so proud.

Kennewick police were recently alerted by a homeowner that somebody was trying to break into her home. Or at least she heard funny noises didn't know what was going on. It turns out this drunk kid was using steak knives to cut screens to break into homes.

 What was he looking for? Just anything to steal? Booze? Here's the problem with trying to be a cat burglar when your drunk. You probably don't realize that you're making the noise you are making. It's much easier to be a bad guy when you're sober. You know, like when you want the music really loud when you've been drinking. Music at a normal level just doesn't seem right unless you're sober. And so it goes with the mystery of the loud cat burglar. Using a knife to cut window screens and making a racket, that was his downfall. Police searched the area and found that a whole bunch of homes had been tampered with, screens cut and whatnot. In a construction site where there were currently no workers, they found the drunk boy hiding in a porta-potty. That's right, nobody was around but the porta-potty was locked. That bright red occupied sign gave him away.
