Pretty sure its in this thread somewhere that he was indeed caught at school with stolen jewelry and a large screwdriver in his backpack, and it just so happens that the neighborhood experiencing a rash of break ins is the one he cut through frequently on candy runs.
Is there an outside chance he wasnt atleast partly responsible for those? sure, its possible... but more often than not 1+1 = 2.
Another clue i find interesting, is zimmermans testimony that while following martin he lost him in a large grassy area between buildings, that makes perfect sense, no way portly little zimmerman catches that kid if he didnt want to be caught... yeah, martin lost him, and if he'd just kept going instead of getting mad and circling back, this wouldnt have happened.
He could've just went home, but he chose not to... just my opinion, but it sure rings true to me.
