In late January, 50-year-old Robert Shull Goddard smashed the glass on the back door of a Nashville home and stole a television and firearm but accidentally left behind incriminating evidence. City police arrested the orderly burglar after he dropped a notebook full of identifying clues. The journal contained a list of other targets—including the address of a house a few miles away that was robbed that same day. It also featured a note from his daughter—as well as her home address. Goddard was convicted of aggravated burglary in late March and sentenced to 12 years in prison, proving crime can sometimes be a little too organized. —Rebecca Philps
