We all know the amazing skills and powers of Master Yoda, but were you aware that he was also able to take fingerprints? In a move worthy of Luke Skywalker, while communing with the Force on Dagobah, Yoda was able to cross time and space to nab the fingerprints of a hapless burglar in Huntingdon.

Matthew Douglas broke into flats and a car in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, and stole electrical items, a briefcase and the Star Wars tin.

But the 28-year-old dropped the latter as he fled one of the properties, leaving a fingerprint which led to his capture.

Douglas, 28, admitted two counts of burglary and one of theft.

He was jailed at Peterborough Crown Court for three years and two months.

Police were able to identify him from the fingerprint he left on the Yoda tin.
