KINGSPORT, Tenn. – It was a Zinger of a theft in Tennessee.
It also included cupcakes, Twinkies and other snack cakes from the Merita Bread Company.
The Kingsport Times-News cites a report from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office in reporting 34-year-old James M. Denoon and 18-year-old Anthony Stout were found hiding under a truck at the bakery late Friday night.
The deputies found about $300 worth of stolen snack cakes stacked on the ground nearby.
Finding the accused thieves was easy: The deputies only had to follow their footprints. There was more than an inch of snow on the ground by Friday night.
Denoon and Stout were charged with theft under $500 and two counts of auto burglary. It was not immediately clear if they had attorneys.
So, these guys were able to devise a plan to break into a bakery,but neglected to think about their exit strategy. Maybe they thought it would be a piece of cake! (Sorry, I love puns and couldn’t resist) BUT neither of these two gents seemed to realized that it was snowing and you leave TRACKS in the snow. I have little to say about this other than lay off the cheeba a little bit guys!
*I am in no way condoning the stealing of munchies goods from bakerys, or anywhere for that matter*
