A Tennessee man allegedly broke into a home, stole some electronics and then accidentally left an envelope in the doorway which included an arrest warrant with his name on it, according to authorities.
On Oct. 18, a neighborhood resident was standing outside his home when Maurica Walls approached him and wanted to sell him candy, purportedly for the children's hospital St. Jude, WREG reported.
The man told police that Walls was holding onto an envelope with a small stack of papers.
The man was suspicious of Walls, so he told him to come back the following day, according to Memphis Police.
Shortly after that interaction, the man’s neighbor left his home. Upon returning, the neighbor found his house had been burglarized, WREG reported.
According to police, the suspect allegedly took several electronics from the victim’s home.
