A man who broke into a Subway and only got away with bags of chips may have eluded capture if he had been able to hold on to the bags of chips and had half a brain. The police followed his trail of dropped chip bags and at the end of the trail they captured the man that legally bald is now calling Mr. Chips. Too bad for Mr. Chips his trail of chips didn’t go the way of Hansel and Gretel’s bread.

WASHINGTON, Pa. –  Police say they followed a trail of potato chips to catch a southwestern Pennsylvania burglary suspect. Washington police say 21-year-old Benjamin Sickles was arrested early Thursday after he allegedly broke into a Subway restaurant and stole several bags of snacks.

Investigators say Sickles broke a glass door before trying to open the cash register. They say he made off with nine bags of chips after he couldn’t get to the cash. Officers say they followed a trail of chip bags to Sickles, who had a bloody hand and foot when he was taken into custody. Sickles is being held at the Washington County Prison on $30,000 bail. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him.
