November 29, 1991

PLANO, Texas (AP) _ A man who allegedly left notes in burglarized cars taunting his victims has been charged with two counts of burglary, police said.

Police said Michael Patrick Fuller, 18, has confessed to 115 burglaries of cars, garages and houses. Twelve have been confirmed, police said.

″I’ve been after this guy for months,″ said Plano Detective Charles Marks.

In five of the alleged car break-ins, the burglar left behind taunting notes.

In one incident, he allegedly stole a stun gun and left the following note:

″I have a new stun gun. You just saved me $49.95. I don’t care much for CB’s, so I left it for you. As tradition goes, call 1-800-YOU’RE A FOOL when you get new stuff.″

The letter also said, ″I had a fun time ransacking your truck″ and ″I wonder what the cops think of my notes?″

Fuller was in Collin County Jail Thursday in lieu of $10,000 bond.
