   EDGEWATER, Fla. (AP) -- Police in central Florida say they arrested a man after finding his dropped cell phone at the scene of a burglary.
   Edgewater police knocked on Kevin Jaycob Slagter's door Wednesday and asked about his cell phone. The 32-year-old said he'd lost the phone. When police told him they'd found it, Slagter confessed to breaking into 11 homes.
   Police found the phone Jan. 6 while investigating a burglary in this community south of Daytona Beach and traced it to Slagter.
   Inside Slagter's home, police say they found some $30,000 in stolen goods, including electronics, jewelry, coins and computers.
   Slagter faces multiple counts of burglary, possession of burglary tools and grand theft.
