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.
