A bandito apparently dropped his crowbar during a home invasion after a 66-year-old resident fended him off by spraying him with window cleaner, officials said, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Afterwards 911 dispatchers got a call from Nathaniel Lee Smith, 29, of Lauderdale Lakes, who reported someone had broken into his home and stolen his stuff, which happened to include a miniature crowbar and black scully -- just matching the description of the ones used during the two earlier robberies, investigators said. Detectives didn't buy his story and charged him kidnapping and armed home invasion, records show.
