Cheetos: A Cop’s Best Friend?

17 Feb

You have to admit, Cheetos are simply the best junk food ever invented. Hands down, no contest. I don’t mean those fake puffy ones. The crunchy ones. Real Cheetos.



19 year old Austin Westfall Presler might beg to differ.

It seems Austin pilfered beer, cigarettes, energy drinks, and Cheetos from the Cassatt Country Store in Cassatt, SC. But he screwed the pooch when he broke open the Cheetos bag and left a trail right to his front door. Police followed the bright orange tid bits to Presler’s home and found the stolen items inside.

A waste of good Cheetos but at least the crime was solved.

Chalk one up for Chester.

    Love it! Cheetos are brain food. It’s a fact. Austin just didn’t eat enough of ’em to get the brain boost needed.

    Cheetos are my go-to food for writing mysteries. I did a recent TV interview and the green room had them–the trick there is to eat them on you way out so that you don’t have an orange grin during the interview.

    No one should eat Cheetos unless they are driving a rental car. Then, and only then, you can wipe your hands on the seats without having someone yell at you.

    It’s good to know that nuclear orange junk is good for something! This post reminds me of Jay Leno’s “stupid criminals” segment.

    I LOVE those exact Cheetos. Who knew they were good for solving crimes too? True confessions: About three times a year I have some instead of supper if needing more library time without hunger & they last.

    As Dave Barry used to say (and still does, for all I know), “You can’t make this stuff up.” Thanks for sharing.

    Priceless! If I wrote this story, no editor would believe it.
