Police in Germany responded to a call from a nearby grocery store reporting a petty burglary.

A thief had come in and left with the premises with about five euros ($5.65) worth of goods, but thankfully, the authorities did not have a difficult time tracking their perp down.  Luckily for them, the thief left a very important clue at the crime scene: his 8-year-old son.

Not only did the 29-year-old leave his son at the crime scene, he apparently fell during his escape attempt and ended the day in the hospital.
