Police Catch a Convenience Store Burglar By Following His Trail of Nacho Cheese
20-year-old Francisco Munoz of Iowa City, Iowa was drunk on Friday night and broke into a convenience store. He stole some snacks, nachos with liquid cheese, lottery tickets, and two cases of Corona. Then he took off. By the time the cops got there he was gone, but he left some very good clues. Specifically, there was a trail of snacks and nacho cheese leading away from the store. And the cops followed it down the street right to him. His shirt was covered in cheese and his blood-alcohol level was .270. He was arrested and charged with burglary, criminal mischief, and public intoxication. Get the full story here.
Drunk Man Ran Fake DUI Checkpoint
Police say a man who set up a drunken-driving checkpoint complete with road flares while pretending to be a Pennsylvania state trooper was drunk. 19-year-old Logan Shaulis parked his vehicle diagonally across a state route and set up road flares at about 4 a.m. Saturday. A motorist who stopped says Shaulis claimed he was a trooper and demanded to see a driver’s license, registration and insurance papers. When real troopers arrived, police say Shaulis tried to hand a BB pistol to the car’s passenger and said, “I can’t get caught with this.” He faces charges including drunken driving, impersonating a public servant and unlawful restraint. He remained jailed Tuesday. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him. Get the full story here.
