Alleged burglar helps himself to creampuffs, soda, then leaves driver’s license behind

Suspect consumes cream puffs, soda during break-in at KU building

A package of creampuffs and a two-liter bottle of Sprite were reported stolen early Sunday morning during a bizarre burglary at Kansas University, campus police reports said.

The suspect, who had allegedly been drinking, smashed in a back-door window at Wilna Crawford Community Center, 1346 La., and helped himself to the refrigerator, police said. The break-in was reported at 1:11 a.m. Sunday.

A KU housing complex director, who was sleeping inside the scholarship hall community center at the time, awoke to a loud noise and found the suspect eating, police reports said.

Police said the suspect eventually ran away, but not before handing over his driver’s license to the housing official and then pushing the 29-year-old victim into a chair on his way out the door.

KU Public Safety Office Capt. Schuyler Bailey said on Monday that no arrests have been made in the burglary and battery case.

A loss of $10 in creampuffs and $2 in Sprite were reported to police. The break-in also caused $300 damage to the building, where campus maintenance employees were working Monday morning to fix the broken window and glass shards left behind.

Shouldn't an arrest be forthcomming, if he left his license?

He can afford to drink, but can"t afford to eat? I read they have a new food bank for that.

Maybe they should be checking other bakeries, to see who has recently purchased large quantities of sprite and creampuffs. He could be a habitual user. There could be serial muggings and break ins. This town could be just on the verge of a real crime spree.

Brilliant. He's no Ronnie Darnell Bell, but this guy should make the "Least Competent Criminals" section in "News of the Weird."

This makes me wonder about the "honest" thief who took $100 from the old lady at Walmart's purse she lost, then left the purse on her doorstep with credit cards and id. I wonder if campus police are collaborating with the LPD to see if there is a connection. Hmmmm.......

Has anybody ever tried to eat $10 in Creampuffs.

Yes I have, and if you think I got Creampuffs for a mere $10, you apparently know a different Creampuffs than I do and it was a taste treat delight I'll never forget.

No arrest has been made...makes me wonder if he handed over HIS driver's license or just someone of age who looks enough like him that he can get into bars.

Hell, does that even work in Lawrence bars anymore?

Should make Jay Leno's dumb criminal list. When creampuffs are outlawed, only outlaws will have creampuffs.
