Austin Presler - Charged With Burglary After Detectives Follow Trail Of Cheetos To His Home

Kershaw County, SC (The Weekly Vice) - Austin Lee Westfall Presler, a 19-year-old South Carolina man, was jailed after he allegedly broke into a local store, then left a trail of Cheetos crumbs to his residence where deputies tracked him down.

According to the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office, Presler reportedly smashed the glass front door at the Cassatt Country Store and stole beer, cigarettes, energy drinks, and a few snacks for the road.

During the burglary, Presler allegedly grabbed a bag of Cheetos that broke open while he was inside the store. The broken bag left Cheetos crumbs on the floor of the store before he fled the scene. The store's surveillance camera captured video that showed Presler fleeing in a white car.

Investigators say deputies began searching the area on foot, and were led to a nearby home with a white car parked in front, similar to the one used in the burglary.

When officers approached the front door, they spotted more Cheetos laying on the porch. They searched the residence, and found Presler in a room, as well as the items he had stolen from the store.

Presler was booked into the Kershaw County Detention Center and charged with second-degree burglary. He was released after posting $15,000 bond.

According to court records, Presler has previous arrests that include possession with intent to distribute controlled substances and driving with a suspended driver's license.
