Drunken Man’s Snack Attack Leads to Burglary Charges
We've all been there. You have a few too many beers and get the munchies. But have you ever been desperate enough to brake a storefront window and steal nachos? 20-year-old Francisco J. Munoz of Iowa City apparently was.
Iowa City police responded to a reported burglary of a convenience store late Friday night. When they arrived, they spotted Munoz walking about a 100 yards away from the scene of the crime. Even if he hadn't been so close, the trail of salty snacks and lottery tickets he dropped behind him would have led officers right to him. And perhaps the most damning evidence of all was a shirt covered in nacho cheese.
As he was being arrested, police noticed Munoz had bloodshot, watery eyes and administered a breathalyzer test. His blood alcohol content was .270 percent. He'd evidently gotten stupefyingly drunk and smashed the store window with a brick, grabbing as many snacks and scratchers as he could carry. He's been charged third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief, and public intoxication. Maybe one of those scratchers will cover his bail.
