Burglar Turns Himself In -- To Testify about a Pedophile

This Dayton Daily News story is stranger than fiction. Allegedly, a Piqua, Ohio burglar broke into an apartment to steal electronics and instead found a toolbox full of pictures of victimized children -- including his little sister. Horrified, the burglar went to the building's maintenance man and then to police about his find. The apartment's tenant, Richard Yearsley, was a registered sex offender. He's being charged with raping a four-year-old little girl, among other things. The burglar's fate is still to be decided by the city prosecutor, but according to the article, he was quoted as knowing what he did was wrong, "The man said he knew what he had done was wrong, but "he knew that Yearsley was involved in something much worse and had to be stopped," according to the police report.

For once, a real case of honor among thieves.
