Forget Columbo.  This robber made it really easy for police to find him.  They just followed his potato chip trail!

A twenty-one year old man has been arrested by police for trying to rob a Pennsylvania Subway restaurant.  He broke three windows and a glass door to get inside the restaurant around 2:30 in the morning.  The thief tried unsuccessfully to rob the cash register but when that wouldn't work, he took nine bags of chips and headed out the door.  According to The Smoking Gun, cops found a trail of chips which led them to the suspect sitting on the steps of Washington High School.  He's been charged with theft, criminal mischief, criminal tresspass and burglary.  All that for nine bags of chips!
