Car burglar takes booze but leaves cell phone behind

DADE CITY — A burglar broke into a car July 2 and stole bottles of rum and vodka, but left something more valuable behind: his cell phone, with his picture on the screen, according to the Dade City Police Department.

Dustin Sabo, 20, apparently left his blue phone in the car during the burglary in the parking lot of Premier Health Care, 14027 5th St., the police report said. When the car owner found the phone and turned it on, the screen showed a photo of Sabo.

Sabo, of 37937 Hillside Lane, was arrested Wednesday and is charged with auto burglary and theft, as well as possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia and violating his felony probation. He is being held without bail at the county jail.
