First Collin Thomas Ferguson was seen in the parked car he was trying to burgle in Amarillo, Texas, by the car's owner. So the New Mexico man fled . . .

Only to have to return to the scene to retrieve his cellphone, which he'd left in the car. So he fled again . . .

Only to be nabbed by police who followed his trail of snowy footprints to yet another parked car he was hiding in.

I hope Collin, who was being held Monday, can find some career counseling in jail. Because as for this burglary thing, well, he's just not very good at it.
