STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- Police used dental records to identify a man who broke into a cafeteria in southern Sweden -- the suspect left his false teeth with his social security number engraved in them at the scene of the crime.

The 43-year-old man admitted to breaking into a hospital cafeteria in Karlshamn, 370 miles south of Stockholm, after being presented with the evidence, the newspaper Kristianstadsbladet said Sunday.

The man told the police he left the cafeteria in a hurry after failing to find anything of any value and dropped the teeth while fleeing the building.

The judge who ordered the man's detention was not available for comment Sunday.
