Burglar Caught While Making Breakfast

UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (AP) — Police in the St. Louis suburb of University City say a suspect in a string of burglaries was caught after a homeowner reported finding him frying bacon in her kitchen.

Kenya Ealy says she returned home after an errand and found 36-year-old Damon Petty of St. Louis cooking breakfast.

Ealy says the suspect initially tried to keep her out of the house by trying to hold the front door shut. But Ealy and a friend managed to tackle and subdue the man and call police.

Petty is charged with first-degree burglary. Police are scrutinizing him in connection with other home burglaries.

Petty does not have a listed home telephone number. It’s not immediately clear if he has an attorney.

    Why are they trying to call him on the telephone? Isn’t he in jail?? If not, shouldn’t he be?

    I always suspected but couldn’t prove that bacon is like kryptonite for criminals.

    Tackled and subdued by a woman?

    Myth proven, not busted.

    Thank you, Damon Petty — aka SuperFry!
