Police were notified just before midnight Thursday that someone was making a lot of noise at the Rolando Little League snack bar in Rolando Park on Vigo Drive, La Mesa police Sgt. Colin Atwood said.
When officers arrived they found the people had fled but that they had left behind evidence that led police right to them.
“We found a trail of chips, candy, and other snacks leading away from the scene and up the street,” Atwood said.
The officers followed the trail of empty cookie, chips and Cheetos packages a couple blocks to Judson Way where they found more snacks behind a vehicle, Atwood said.
That vehicle was parked in front of a house. Seeing as there was some pretty good probable cause, police searched that house and found more stolen property, including the snack bar cash register.
Four people were arrested, none of whom were identified. All that’s known about them is that they were one man, two women and a girl. Oh, and that three of them went to jail and one to juvie.
I’d throw a parents of the year tag on this, but I’m not sure if the girl belongs to any of the others.
