Police is St. Paul didn't have to work hard to catch a man who broke into a Minnesota house.

First the burglar failed to log out of Facebook after checking his profile on the homeowner's computer. Then he agreed to meet up with homeowner James Wood in an effort to get back wet clothes he'd left behind.

Wood said the burglar has to be the "world's dumbest criminal."

Police say the burglar took credit cards, cash and a watch last week.

Wood posted his phone number on the burglar's Facebook page, hoping someone would call.

The burglar texted Wood and agreed to meet with the homeowner, thinking he could negotiate for his clothes. When Wood spotted the burglar, he recognized him from Facebook and called police.
