A Florida crook had cops put a cap on his crime spree after tracking him down through DNA on a cap he left behind while trying to swipe a car.

The overnight security guard at a used car dealership in Hollywood spotted Michael Saul (Pictured) on the lot and took off after him, then noticed he and an accomplice had driven a Hyundai Sonata through a hole cut in the barrier fence. Whoever was behind the wheel racked up the vehicle by smacking into a tree stump, but they managed to flee in their original car, leaving Saul’s baseball cap behind.

Crime scene technicians swabbed the hat and found a match in the state’s DNA crime database, which led to Saul’s arrest on charges of burglary and grand theft auto.

Guess you could say he didn’t use his head!
