Cell phone left charging after break-in

A landlord found an extension cord plugged into a Dade City mobile home's bedroom outlet, running out a widow and into the yard of a neighbor whose electricity had been cut off.

The cord didn't quite reach the next mobile home, but another clue pointed at the neighbor: His cell phone was being charged in the kitchen of the broken-into home.

Though the break-in occurred in February, the neighbor - suspended lawyer William Webb Greenfelder - wasn't arrested until this week. He is charged with residential burglary. Greenfelder had said that his cell phone had been stolen.
