The man identified as the "Ninja Burglar" has been caught and apparently confessed to his nearly 150 burglaries that have occurred since 2005. The 46-year-old man was arrested on felony charges for breaking into homes in the middle of the night, dressed in the attire of a Ninja, and stealing from bedrooms while the occupants often were sleeping. One of the areas where he specialized his illegal craft was in upstate New York.
The man's guilty plea was apparently scheduled to take place in a New York court, according to police. The authorities say that he has admitted to the burglaries and has even described his various techniques to them. However, they have charged him with only three crimes due to the statute of limitations.
