EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) - Police say a Volusia County man left a calling card at the scene of a burglary -- his cell phone.
Edgewater police knocked on Kevin Jaycob Slagter's door Wednesday and asked about his cell phone. The 32-year-old said he had lost the phone. When police told him they had found the phone, Slagter confessed to breaking into 11 homes.
Police found the phone Jan. 6 while investigating at burglary in this community south of Daytona Beach. They traced it to Slagter.
Inside Slagter's home, police found some $30,000 worth of stolen goods, including electronics, jewelry, coins and computers.
Slagter faces multiple counts of burglary, possession of burglary tools and grand theft. He is being held on $15,000 bail at Volusia County Jail.
