    He took items from his own home, and was arrested? I take my car keys everytime I leave my house, sometimes I even take my car and I may even take my sunglasses. I need to be very careful.

    Well, it is a home invasion basically-and often times things like this goes so wrong for the occupant. Really, for the crime, it's a slap on the wrist, he'll get probation...need to check to see if he has any priors..which I bet he does. In Halifax County, it's a revolving door of probations, before any real jail time is given.
