How Many Men Does it Take to Steal a $10 Sandwich? Four, Apparently


I love sandwiches as much as the next guy. That’s why it terrifies me that, with a few poor decisions, I could easily be sitting in a cell with the fellows who were arrested on Sunday, Aug. 4 in Newport Beach, Calif. for suspicion of stealing a sandwich from a parked car.

Four men were arrested on suspicion of vehicle burglary and conspiracy according to Newport Beach police spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella.

Around 5:55 pm on Sunday, police received a call that a man (who was later identified as Oscar Iglesias, 25) was removing a bag from a parked vehicle in Newport Center Drive, said Manzella. The car had been locked, but the window was lowered.

She added that after taking the bag, Iglesias entered a vehicle waiting. Waiting in the car were Daniel Godinez, 23, Edwin Yhuit, 27, and Daniel Garcia, 28. The four were identified when the anonymous caller gave the police a license plate number and vehicle description. A quick Google Maps search showed that they only made it less than two miles with the sandwich before they were arrested.

The bag with the yet-to-be identified sandwich, was valued at $10. (I’m thinking it HAD to be good though. Possibly pastrami?)

So how far would you go for a sandwich? I guess it depends on the sandwich really. But it had to be really good for these guys to be looking at some jail time and probably a hefty charge.
