Police seeking a man accused of breaking into a US elementary school say they identified the suspect by calling "Ma" from the contact list of a mobile phone he dropped as he fled.
A police report says officers responding to an alarm at an elementary school in Athens in north-east Georgia arrived in time to see a man running through the cafeteria and out the back door.
Police failed to catch the man, but say he dropped his cell phone as he ran.
According to the report, officers picked up the phone, searched the contact list and called a number marked "Ma." They say a woman who answered gave them her son's name.
