Hungry House Burglar Caught Eating Cereal


SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Police in Ohio arrested a burglar who apparently had an empty stomach.

Officers say this man broke into a Sylvania Township house where two women were inside.

According to one woman, the man was sitting in the kitchen eating Frosted Flakes.

After she told him to leave, he did, peacefully, but he took her ID card from her wallet.

Police were eventually able to identify the man because he had left his own wallet and the ID card inside, at an adult entertainment store.

He was arrested Thursday afternoon.

It turns out the door of the house he entered was unlocked. That led authorities to remind the community of the importance of locking doors.
