Burglar told cops he was a trainee locksmith

275x250.jpg When police in Utah were called to a man trying to break into a car and apprehended a man carrying lock picks and bolt cutters, they assumed he would own up to it.

But instead, the 31-year-old -- who was also carrying a glass pipe for smoking methamphetamine -- tried telling officers he was actually just practicing to be a locksmith.

However, after requesting a search warrant they seized stolen items from a truck which included purses, wallets, a gun an gems worth an estimated $5,000.

The man, who admitted to using methamphetamine, has now been charged with breaking into the vehicle, possession of burglary tools, theft and drug possession.

We're guessing his lock-picking tools were taken from him before he was put in handcuffs.
