Potato Chip Trail Led To Suspect Benjamin Sickles, Police Say

Posted: Updated:

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.
