Discarded wrappers used to track snack thieves

LA MESA, Calif.

La Mesa Police Sgt. Colin Atwood tells U-T San Diego that police were called late Thursday night about a lot of noise at the Rolando Little League snack bar in Rolando Park.

Atwood says officers followed empty cookie, chip and Cheetos packages for about two blocks to a home where more snacks were found in a car.

Atwood says one man, two women and a girl were arrested for investigation of burglary. The girl was taken to Juvenile Hall.

Inside their home, Atwood says officers found more Little League property, including a cash register.

La Mesa is about 10 miles northeast of San Diego.
