A Pennsylvania man was caught, almost red-handed after he allegedly stole a pot of meatballs. Authorities have said his hands weren’t exactly red, but he did have “red sauce smeared on his face and clothes” at the time he was taken into custody.
This all started one brisk day in late-February, police said, when they got a call from a man who said a pot of meatballs had been swiped from his garage. The unidentified victim also spotted a man standing on the street, who looked very much as if he’d partaken in the theft (presumably due to the sauce stains on his shirt).
When the police arrived, they agreed the man had all the telltale signs of being the prime suspect.
He was arrested and booked into the county jail on charges of criminal trespass, theft by unlawful taking and burglary.
His bail bonds were set at $25,000.
We’re guessing he’s since learned that they don’t serve meatballs in jail.
