Pennsylvania Man With Red Sauce on His Face Arrested for Meatballs Theft: Cops
The giveaway was the red sauce on his face and clothes, police said.
A Pennsylvania man was caught red-faced after a neighbor reported a stolen pot of meatballs, authorities said.
Leahman G.R. Potter was arrested Monday on burglary, trespassing and theft charges for allegedly walking off with a mess of the Italian mainstay, according to state police.
A homeowner told investigators that he returned home at about 2:30 p.m. and found a man with red sauce on his face and clothes standing outside his house. When the owner walked into his garage, he realized a pot of meatballs was missing.
Troopers responding to his call found an empty pot in the street.
Potter was arrested at his home a short time later, authorities said. It wasn't clear what led troopers to him.
He was held at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility in lieu of $25,000 bail.
