The Reel Life loves nothing more than a stupid criminal. And Austin Lee Westfall Presler gave us a great story this week.
Presler, 19, was recently arrested in South Carolina and charged with robbing a convenience store. The robbery took place after the store was closed, and there was $160 in stolen goods and $2,500 in damages to report. Police arrested him just a few hours later.
How'd they catch him so fast, you ask? Simple, really. During the heist (which included beer, cigarettes and Slim Jims, Presler allegedly broke a few bags o Cheetos. He left a trail of Cheetos all the way back to his car and the place where he was staying, just 0.2 miles away.
"He was very easy to catch," store manager Howard "Buck" Buckholz told ABCNews.com. "It was a very quick deal."
