Another PA genius

WASHINGTON, Pa. ó Police say they followed a trail of potato chips to catch a southwestern Pennsylvania burglary suspect.

Washington police say 21-year-old Benjamin Sickles was arrested early Thursday after he allegedly broke into a Subway restaurant and stole several bags of snacks.

Investigators say Sickles broke a glass door before trying to open the cash register. They say he made off with nine bags of chips after he couldn't get to the cash.

Officers say they followed a trail of chip bags to Sickles, who had a bloody hand and foot when he was taken into custody.

Sickles is being held at the Washington County Prison on $30,000 bail. Online court records don't list an attorney for him.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I guess a bad case of the munchies will do that.......

If ya break into a Subway.....at least make yourself a footlong. Eat healthy my friend.

Re: Another PA genius

When I break into places to steal potato chips, I go to grocery stores because the potato chip bags are bigger. I like to thinbk of myself as an efficient criminal.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious
