IOWA CITY — A cheese covered shirt and a trail of snacks implicated an Iowa City man in a Friday night burglary.
Iowa City police were called to the Creekside Market, 2601 Highway 6 E., around 11:20 p.m. Friday for a report of a burglary. Responding officers discovered 20-year-old Francisco J. Munoz about 100 yards from the convenience store carrying two cases of Corona beer.
Police said Munoz’ shirt was covered in nacho cheese and there was a trail of snack foods and lottery tickets between him and the store. Munoz had bloodshot, watery eyes and showed other signs of intoxication, police said. A post-arrest breath test showed Munoz had a blood alcohol content of .270 percent.
Munoz used a brick to smash the entry door of the convenience store, causing $1,000 in damage. He was arrested and faces charges of third-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and public intoxication.
