Burglar breaks into police substation, chows down

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) It took some police work to catch a burglary suspect who had broken into a closed Florida police substation and ate an officer's chicken dinner.

But not a lot of police work.

Detectives didn't need to do things like lift fingerprints or get DNA from the discarded meal.

All they had to do was to check the ID cards the suspect left behind.

Police in Boynton Beach say officers arriving for a morning shift at the substation last week found a broken window and the remains of an officer's dinner.

They also found a wallet, which contained the suspect's two ID cards.

Police have taken 29-year-old Yvelande Jean-Pierre into custody, and charged her with burglary.
