Is this the world's weirdest burglary?

A BURGLAR who broke into a home just east of Fresno rubbed spices over the body of one of two men as they slept in their rooms
and then used an 8-inch sausage to whack the other man in the face and head before he ran out the house, Fresno County
sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

Lieutenant Ian Burrimond of Fresno County, California, described the crime as one of the strangest he had ever heard of.

He said a suspect was found hiding in a nearby field a few minutes later and taken into custody on suspicion of residential robbery.

Deputies, he said, had no problem linking the suspect to the crime.

"It seems the guy ran out of the house wearing only a T-shirt, boxer shorts and socks, leaving behind his wallet with his ID,'' Burrimond said.
Arrested was Antonio Vasquez, 22, of Fresno.

Burrimond said deputies were dispatched to the victims' home in the 300 block of South Thompson Avenue near Kings Canyon Road
shortly after 8 a.m. Saturday regarding a burglary in progress.

The victims, both farmworkers, told deputies they were awakened by a stranger applying spices to one of the them and striking the
other with a sausage.

Both the spices and the sausage, Burrimond said, reportedly were obtained from the victims' kitchen.
After the man fled, the victims discovered the home had been ransacked and that some money was taken, Burrimond said.

Burrimond said the money was recovered, but that the piece of sausage used in the attack was discarded by the suspect and
eaten by a dog.

"That's right, the dog ate the weapon,'' Burrimond said.
"I tell you, this was one weird case.'',22049,24307571-5001021,00.html
