A thirsty thief is now in jail, charged with stealing a can of tea and some knives. Fox Carolina reported the story May 13.
Marion, North Carolina is a small southern town. Located in McDowell County, the area is known for its hospitality.
Logan Pittman, 26, must not have believed he would have been given a glass of tea at a Hedgewood Drive residence, where he was seen leaving the scene after a burglary back on May 4.
Deputies for the McDowell County Sheriff's Department arrested Pittman, who was found with three stolen hunting knives and a can of peach tea. The value of the items stolen came to $76.
The knives were recovered, and Pittman was charged with felony breaking and entering, as well as felony larceny. He was taken to McDowell County Sheriff's Office.
Really, if you want a glass of tea, just ask for it. Just add this one to the dumb criminals file.
