WASHINGTON, Pa. (July 6, 2012)—Police in Washington, Pa., arrested Benjamin Sickles, 21, early Thursday after a break-in at a Subway restaurant in which several bags of snacks were stolen.
And all they had to do to find him was to follow the trail of potato chips he left.
Sickles is accused of breaking a glass door before trying to open the cash register, investigators said.
They said he made off with nine bags of chips after he couldn't get to the cash.
Officers say they followed the 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.
