This computer thief was little more than a hack.
Cops chased down a crook caught burglarizing a Mission district home in broad daylight Thursday, police said.
The theft attempt occurred in the 3300 block of 16th Street at 11:20 a.m. A resident said he heard his back door being kicked in. When he investigated, he spotted a black man in his 60s walking out with his computer, cops said.
Officers swiftly arrived at the scene and arrested the suspect following a brief chase, police said.
