Cops Follow Trail Of Cheetos to Burglar’s Front Door


Austin Lee Westfall Presler was arrested for second-degree burglary of a country store in Kershaw County, S.C. Officials found him by following a trail of Cheetos.

Some people get arrested because someone reports them to the police. In one man’s case, it was the Cheetos that got him busted.

Deputies in Kershaw County, S.C. arrested Austin Lee Westfall Presler on Sunday and charged him with second-degree burglary of a general store. Police said Presler shattered the front glass of the Cassett Country Store and stole beer, cigarettes, snacks and energy drinks, according to WLTX-TV.

Presler wasn’t on the lam very long, because during the break-in, cops said, he opened a bag of Cheetos that spilled on the floor and left a trail of snack food goodness leading right to the front porch of his home.

Deputies said they found Presler inside the house with the stolen items and made the arrest. Presler was booked into the Kershaw County Detention Center and later released on a $15,000 bond. He has previous arrests for possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and driving under suspension in Sumter County.

Shoplifter Tased After Stealing Chocolate Ice Cream


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Police say a Louisville man caused quite a disturbance and had to be tased after he stole one pint of Prairie Farms chocolate ice cream. It happened at the Value Mart near the intersection of Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue, just after 4:30 Monday afternoon.

Police say they were called there after store employees said a man had just stolen merchandise from the store.

Officers later stopped 59-year-old Donald Doran, who was walking near the intersection of Bardstown Road and Patterson Avenue. When confronted about the alleged theft, Doran allegedly threw his belongings on the ground, “took a bladed, fighting stance,” and started moving aggressively toward the officer.

That’s when the officer drew a taser. Police say Doran ran away, with the officer in close pursuit. Eventually, the officer tased Doran, but the taser was ineffective. Doran then began to fight the officer, according to the arrest report.

Several vehicles swerved around Doran, police say, and the disturbance caused “panic and alarm” to people walking on the sidewalk. Eventually, officers were able to subdue Doran and place him in handcuffs. They were also able to find the merchandise Doran allegedly stole: one pint of Prairie Farms chocolate ice cream.

Doran was charged with assault, fleeing and evading police, menacing, resisting arrest, shoplifting and disorderly conduct, according to an arrest report.

A fight erupted in a Florida Subway restaurant Tuesday when a customer ordered ketchup on his Philly cheesesteak sandwich, leading to the termination of the employee after violence and death threats.

Luis Martinez ordered ketchup on his Philly cheesesteak sandwich in a Florida Subway, which erupted into a fight and death threats from the now-terminated employee, Lawrence Ordone. According to WFTV, Luis Martinez ordered a cheesesteak with “American cheese, onions and ketchup” to Lawrence Ordone, who was working at the Subway.

“He wants ketchup on the Philly cheese steak and I have never put — we don’t even have ketchup at Subway — I’ve never put ketchup on anybody’s sandwich,” Ordone told WFTV. That’s when Ordone “flew off the handle,” in his own words, and started a fight with Martinez who was reportedly being “mouthy.”

“He shoved a chair to the side, like knocked it down to come at me, and I said, ‘This is going to be serious,'” Martinez said.

Ordone reportedly asked Martinez to “fight me like a man” and blocked him so he couldn’t escape. “I was scared. Next thing, I’m thinking a gun’s going to come out,” Martinez said. “He threatened to kill me in front of my wife.”

Ordone said he was fired from Subway the following day and cannot understand how a fight erupted over ketchup on a sandwich. “There’s ketchup three aisles down. You can go buy your own ketchup, and I promise to God, you can put as much as you want on it and nobody’s going to say nothing,” Ordone said.

WFTV said Ordone was not arrested and the case may reach the State Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

California Teens Drug Parents’ Milkshakes to Sneak Onto Internet

Vanilla_MilkshakeDaughter described family’s Internet policy as “too strict,” say investigators

Two Northern California teenage girls are accused of spiking milkshakes with prescription sleeping medicine to knock out the parents as part of an alleged conspiracy to skirt the family’s ban on home Internet use after 10 p.m., according to police.

The incident happened on the evening of Dec. 28 in Rocklin, Calif., a city of about 60,000 people approximately 21 miles northeast of Sacramento.

“The 16-year-old daughter and her (15-year-old) friend were at a house in Rocklin and they say, ‘hey mom and dad, how about we get you some milkshakes?’ They go to a local fast food restaurant and get some milkshakes,” Rocklin Police Department Lt. Lon Milka said Thursday. The teens then allegedly spiked the shakes with some sort of anti-anxiety medicine, Milka said.

The parents finished about a quarter of the milkshakes — which “tasted funny” and had a “gritty feel” — before pouring them out, Milka said. An hour later, the couple “passed out asleep,” according to police. The parents awoke with hangover symptoms, Milka said.

“They kind of put two and two together, and they said their daughter had wanted Internet access after 10 p.m., the time it was automatically cut off at their house,” Milka said. The daughter had described the family’s Internet policy as “too strict,” according to investigators.

After taking a urine drug test from Rocklin police, the parents “believed they got a positive,” and brought their daughter in for questioning, Milka said. The girls, one from Rocklin and the other from Roseville, were booked into Placer County Juvenile Hall on suspicion of willfully mingling a pharmaceutical into food and conspiracy. The teens’ names were not released.
