Burglary suspect covered in pudding Published: May 5, 2009 at 3:29 PM
Police in Pennsylvania said a man suspected of burglarizing and vandalizing apartments was covered in pudding and spray paint at the time of his arrest.
Investigators said Hipolito Junior Vasquez, 24, allegedly used pudding, chocolate sauce and silver spray paint to vandalize off-campus apartments occupied by Lehigh University students Friday with lewd messages and images, the Easton (Pa.) Express-Times reported Tuesday.
Vasquez allegedly entered three apartments and took a backpack, frozen chicken breasts, bottles of liquor and a case of beer. He was arrested about a block from the scene of the last robbery after police recognized him from a victim's description and noticed he was covered in pudding and paint.
Police said they found a backpack filled with the missing items near where Vasquez was arrested. He was charged with burglary, theft, receiving stolen property, criminal mischief, trespassing and conspiracy. Police said he also had an outstanding warrant on domestic violence charges.
