A barefooted burglar who was sprayed with invisible paint during a break-in was caught when police shone a UV light on his feet and they glowed green. John Richards was seen on CCTV being doused with the traceable liquid by a security system at a business in Ludlow, Shropshire. The 39-year-old pleaded guilty to burglary at Shrewsbury Crown Court. Police said it was the "first success" in an operation using covert technology to tackle burglaries in the area. Richards was barefoot in a bid to creep around quietly but left footprints in the SmartWater UV paint which was found inside his boots and on a stolen cash box, police said.
