NEON, KY (KCTV) -

Every child's dream is to roam in the fictitious Willy Wonka factory.

But one Kentucky man allegedly turned a small-town grocery store into his personal candy shop because of his sweet tooth.

Andrew Allen Michael Toothman allegedly admitted to breaking into the grocery store while wearing nothing but a pair of black boots. He then smeared chocolate and peanut butter all over his body, police say.

The 22-year-old man was arrested for burglary, criminal mischief and indecent exposure.

Kentucky State troopers were dispatched to a complaint at the Food World IGA in Neon, KY, last week. Workers at the grocery store told authorities that Toothman was naked and had broken into the store.

Upon arriving onto the scene, another trooper found Toothman completely nude wearing only a pair of black boots inside the store. The trooper said Toothman had wiped  peanut butter and chocolate all over his body.

Troopers say the front door was shattered, and Toothman may have entered through that door.

According to a police report, Toothman apparently spelled out "Sorry" on the floor with Nyquil. 

Adding to the sticky mess, Toothman allegedly fired off several fire extinguishers, adding another ingredient to his concoction. Peanut butter and chocolate were also smeared on the floor and throughout the manager's office.

Store manager David Whitaker told The Associated Press that Toothman caused an estimated  $1,500 in damages.

Whitaker also said it appeared Toothman spread Skippy Natural peanut butter and chocolate on himself after entering the manager's office.

"He had sat down in my chair and his backside was covered in chocolate and peanut butter," said Whitaker. "My chair is out beside the Dumpster."
