Wisconsin thief cooks bacon in burglarized home, complaint says
|Nothing could stop Paul Muthamia from frying some up before fleeing the scene.|
An alleged burglar busted out the skillet and started to cook himself some bacon in a home he had just burglarized last year, according to the Wisconsin State Journal. He was charged yesterday after police used DNA from a shoe he left behind to identify him.
Paul M. Muthamia, 49, of Middleton, Wisconsin, allegedly broke into a North High Point Road home on October 30 after the people who lived there went to church. He stole some jewelry, then cracked open a root beer and started to cook some bacon before hurriedly leaving, according to the criminal complaint.
Police found a shoe near the back door of the house and sent it to the Wisconsin state crime lab for testing. They also sent along the root beer bottle and the box of bacon. Muthamia's DNA was found on the bottle and the shoe.
