Police follow discarded wrappers to theft suspects
LA MESA, Calif. (AP) - June 4, 2012 (WPVI) -- Police say they followed a trail of discarded food wrappers to track down four people accused of stealing from a Little League snack bar.
La Mesa Police Sgt. Colin Atwood tells U-T San Diego that police were called late Thursday about noise at the Rolando Little League snack bar in Rolando Park. Atwood says officers followed a trail of empty cookie, chip and Cheetos packages for about two blocks to a home where more snacks were found in a car.
Atwood says officers found more Little League property, including a cash register, inside the home. He says one man, two women and a girl were arrested for investigation of burglary.
La Mesa is about 10 miles northeast of San Diego.
