Thief Leads Cops Right to his Front Door with Trail of Cheetos

It’s like a trail of bread crumbs, except way more delicious.

Austin Lee Westfall Presler, 19, was arrested on January 6 in Kershaw County, S.C., after allegedly stealing beer, cigarettes, snacks and energy drinks from the local Cassatt Country Store, WLTX reported. Store manager Howard “Buck” Buckholz told that Presler only stole $160 worth of goods, but caused upwards of $2,500 worth of damage.

While carrying all of his stolen merchandise he some how opened three bags of Cheetos. Those Cheetos were strewn all over the store’s floor and in the doorway. Buckholz said that a neighbor across the street told him and police that the car Presler was driving was parked across the street at the Hard Times Café.”Cheetos were all over the parking lot, at the place where he parked his car, and at the residence,” Buckholz said.

Presler does not live in the area, but was staying with someone that lives less than 1/5 of a mile from his store, Buckholz said.”He was very easy to catch,” he said. “It was a very quick deal.”

You would think at some point you would take a peek behind you to see if someone is chasing you. At that point he might have noticed the trail he was leaving.
