A dimwitted ex-con was nabbed for breaking into a Forest Hills home after he dropped a letter addressed to him at the scene, authorities said yesterday.
Dennis Davis, 53, allegedly busted into a house on 110th Street near 69th Avenue by smashing a basement window between 8 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. last Tuesday.
When the woman renting the place came home, she found furniture in disarray.
She also found an envelope from the Legal Aid Society addressed to Davis, authorities said.
Cops caught up with Davis a short time later, and he admitted he broke into the home, officials said.
Davis, who had been released from jail a week earlier on an unrelated criminal-trespassing charge, has served six stints in state prison for burglary-related crimes. He has an arrest record dating back to 1986, authorities said.
He was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and unlawful possession, according to a spokesman for DA Richard Brown.
