‘Snacking Bandit’ Gets Taste Of Justice

The burglar had an appetite for jewelry, cash, computers and leftover pizza, acquiring the nickname “The Snacking Bandit.”

Now authorities are serving up some justice.

Paul Keller, 30, was arrested Thursday after he went to police, saying he was the victim of a robbery, police Capt. Bernard Gillespie said.

The officer taking his report noticed he fit the description of “The Snacking Bandit,” suspected in 11 break-ins. Keller was picked out of lineup by one of the victims, Gillespie said.

The culinary crime spree began in early April and lasted into June. Typically, the bandit would enter through second-floor windows, then steal, eat and run. The victims found remnants of the bandit’s meals: pizza, cranberry juice and apple pie.
