WTH? A Burglar Wakes Up a Couple to Ask For Their Wi-Fi Password

Teenagers today really DO need to be connected to the internet at all times, no matter WHAT they’re doing, huh?

On Sunday, a couple in their 60s in Palo Alto, California got woken up in the middle of the night by a BURGLAR in their house.

He was a 17-year-old guy, and he’d cut through a screen to get in. And the reason he woke up the couple was . . . he was out of data, and he wanted their Wi-Fi password.

The couple called the cops and chased him out of the house, and the police caught him a few minutes later.

And . . . they connected him to another burglary the night before, where he’d ALSO asked the people in the house if he could hop on their Wi-Fi.

He didn’t actually STEAL anything from either of the houses, but he was on a stolen bike, so the cops have him on two burglary charges and one theft charge.
