Burglary suspect left behind a T-shirt with his name on it

A man accused of breaking into two businesses in Racine, Wisconsin, in late July allegedly left a shirt with his name ironed into it at one of the crime scenes. On July 28, Racine police officers were dispatched to the Port of Call liquor store on a report of a burglary.

When police arrived, the observed two broken glass doors leading into the store in addition to a grey T-shirt laying in the entrance way. Police observed that the cash register had been taken. When they talked with the owners, they indicated the cash in the register was about $300 and the register itself was valued at about $1,000.

When police reviewed the security footage, they observed that the T-shirt on the floor contained the name "Dustin Brannon" ironed onto it. Officers looked up the aforementioned name in their lookup system and found a picture of Brannon. They compared the photo with Port of Call's security footage and made the match.

Brannon is also accused of robbing a second Racine-area business, a Citgo gas station. Brannon, 35, of Trevor, is being held in the Racine County Jail on a $2,500 cash bond. He has been charged with two counts of felony burglary that carry a combined maximum of 24 years of incarceration if he is convicted. Brannon's next appearance in court is Sep. 1.

Reminds me of the guy who wrote his threat note to the bank teller on the back of one of his checks.
