A Trail Of Macaroni Salad Led To The Capture Of Stupid Restaurant Burglars


When burglars steal an entire surveillance system, you’d think they’d be the kind of thieves who’d be more careful with the evidence they leave behind. Turns out, that’s not so much the case with this New York restaurant robbery.

Upon investigating the New York Build-A-Burger, police discovered a “steady trail of macaroni salad” along with parts of surveillance equipment leaving the crime scene.

Turns out the three suspects also stole a bowl of the side dish and shared it as they made their escape. As the officers followed the trail, they eventually found and arrested the suspects.

Police charged the macaroni salad thieves with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree grand larceny.


The Oyster Job: 90 Pounds of Oysters Stolen

Paul Appleby, a distributor from SeaFresh Oysters, was making his rounds delivering oysters when he came back to his truck and noticed that two boxes of oysters were taken from the the back of his truck. The thieves made off with an estimated 90 pounds of oysters, roughly about 1,000 mollusks. Appleby believes the estimated loss will be around $500 for him as a distributor, but up to $1,500 for customers hungry for oysters.

So what do you think the story is behind these missing oysters? A bunch of oyster hungry thieves? A desperate couple whose dinner party menu got ruined? Aliens looking for fuel?

Well, maybe not that last one.
