KERSHAW COUNTY, SC (WIS) -
A Kershaw County man is in some trouble after allegedly leaving a tasty trail of evidence to his hiding place after he burglarized a Cassatt store, according to investigators.
During the early morning hours of January 6, Kershaw County Sheriff's Office deputies were called to the Cassatt Country Store to investigate a burglary after a delivery man noticed the front glass door of the store had been shattered.
Responding deputies determined that a person, later identified as Austin Lee Westfall Presler, 19, had broken into the store and had stolen beer, cigarettes, snack foods, and energy drinks.
During the alleged burglary, Presler had inadvertently broken open a bag of Cheetos leaving several of the cheesy nuggets strewn on the floor of the store, investigators said.
Surveillance video showed a white car speeding away from the scene. Deputies began a foot search from the store and went to a home located nearby on Cassatt Rd. where they located a similar white car.
As investigators approached the front door of the home, they observed more fresh Cheetos on the front porch.
After getting permission to search the home, deputies discovered Presler in a room along with the items stolen from the store. He was taken into custody and charged with 2nd degree burglary.
Presler was booked into the Kershaw County Detention Center and later released on a $15,000 bond.
He has previous arrests for possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and driving under suspension in Sumter County, deputies said.
