Would-Be Burglar Found Drunk and Covered in Cupcake Icing by Police

Alpena, Michigan, police arrested a drunken failed burglar after finding her covered in cake and frosting


Our own drunken adventures were never this interesting.

Talk about a frosting fail. Alpena, Michigan, police had an unusual robbery case on their hands this past weekend. After responding to a call about a possible break-in, police found the suspect a few blocks away from the house in question, drunk and covered in cupcake frosting.

The comical event occurred after the suspect allegedly barreled through a house on Lewis Street in the early Sunday morning hours, clumsily knocking over a tray of cupcakes, as well as other items,  in her harried attempts to rob the house. When they heard the crash, the house’s occupants called the police. Cops had no trouble tracking down the intoxicated robber, who left a frosting-dipped trail in her wake.

The police report described her as, "highly intoxicated and had cupcake frosting and cake all over her torso and legs.”


She was taken to county jail on charges of unlawful entry.
