Teen burglar wakes up couple to ask for their Wi-Fi password

A 60-something couple in Palo Alto got an unpleasant surprise on Sunday when they woke up in the middle of the night to find a masked intruder in their bedroom. He said he wanted to use the couple’s Wi-Fi network.

Man this kid really wanted to get online.

The 17 year old, cut through a screened window, entered the home and then proceeded to try and connect to their network.

After being run out of the house by its owners the teen was arrested fleeing the scene on a bicycle and was found to have visited other homes earlier in the night where he was again trying to get online because, and I quote, “he was out of data”.
