A high school paper helped lead Fort Worth police to a burglary suspect.

On Tuesday, officers arrested 17-year-old Joseph Ross on burglary charges. Police say they believe Ross and two others broke into a home on Verona Way last month.

The burglars took off with electronics and jewelry from the home, but they left something behind -- a backpack that contained a high school quiz.

"He made a 100, it was on a quiz or a test grade, the officer said," homeowner Rene McNeil said. "It was one of the 17-year-olds suspects who apparently has dropped out of high school."
