BOYNTON BEACH, Fla., Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a man accused of stealing $600 from a nail salon after he allegedly left his cellphone behind at the scene.

Investigators said Kenneth Plummer, 26, broke into a Boynton Beach nail salon and made off with $600 cash, but left his cellphone behind at the scene, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Monday.

Plummer was seen counting his money while eating breakfast at the Boynton Diner, next door to the salon.

Police said Plummer was busted later in the day after a homeowner allegedly caught him trying to break into an occupied dwelling.

Plummer was jailed on charges of burglary and grand theft.
