Suspected Snack Burglars Caught Cheeto-Fingered

Note to would-be burglars: Don’t eat cheese doodles during your getaway.

Three Minnesota teenagers are facing criminal charges after police say they broke into a vending machine, then ate Cheetos all the way home.

Officers noticed orange dust on the ground when they got to a rec center’s smashed and looted vending machine in St. Paul. They traced the cheesy dust all the way around the building and to a home around the corner. Curiously enough, the home was filled with lots of bags of vending machine snacks.

Each teen claimed he didn’t steal anything — after which we can only assume he licked the Cheeto residue off his fingers and opened up a bag of Corn Nuts.
