Prints on snack box spur burglary arrest

A hungry burglar who stole a snack at a Fort Wayne home has been arrested after police found his fingerprints on a box of honey buns, according to court papers filed Friday.

On May 23, city police received a report that the back door of the home had been kicked in. A flat-screen television, laptop computer and other items were missing, court papers stated.

The burglar had also drunk some juice and eaten honey buns. The box of honey buns was checked for prints, and investigators found three prints that belonged to Demaury Haywood, court papers said.

Haywood, 19, of the 1200 block of Glenwood Avenue, faces felony charges of burglary and residential entry. He was being held without bond at the Allen County Jail on a probation violation.
