STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) - A man suspected of breaking into a Connecticut animal hospital looking for drugs made it easy for police to track him down - he left his keys and cellphone behind.

The Connecticut Post (https://bit.ly/2kosUsj ) reports that police responded to a burglar alarm at The Pet Hospital in Stratford recently to find a rear window broken and blood on the window frame.

Inside, police say they found a trail of blood on the floor, along with keys and a phone. They say it appears the burglar was looking for drugs.

Police traced the phone to 31-year-old Nicholas Bruner and charged him with third-degree burglary and second-degree criminal mischief. He is free on $10,000 bond.

Bruner said he had lost the items but couldn’t remember where.
