Michael Don Mitchell, Ravioli Theft Suspect, Had Chef Boyardee Sauce On Face When Arrested

SAUCED! Ravioli 'Thief' Caught Red-Faced

If Michael Don Mitchell is convicted of burglary, he has only himself to blame -- and Chef Boyardee.

Mitchell, 38, was arrested and charged with burglary on Monday by officers in Gregg County, Tex. after allegedly taking about $87 in cash and change from a home in Lakeport, Tex., according to KFXK-TV.

Officers also said that Mitchell ate a can of ravioli during the robbery. Investigators were able to identify him as a suspected burglar by the telltale spaghetti sauce on his lips and mouth, which was, according to the arrest report, "consistent with the sauce used in Chef Boyardee raviolis," KETK-TV reported.

Mitchell also took a green reusable shopping bag, a black fleece hood and two $2 bills.

Currently, he is being held Tuesday in the Gregg County Jail on $10,000 bond.

He's not the only criminal who got in trouble because of his hunger or thirst.

Earlier this year, Russell Neff was accused of breaking and entering into a home in Salisbury, Md., stripping down to his underwear and cooking a chicken pot pie belonging to the victim. Oh, and he licked the remote control.
