Ho Ho theft leads to string of charges
3/11/2004

HAZLETON, Iowa (AP) -- The string of charges involved meth, trespassing and fraud, but it was the snatching of Hostess Ho Hos and Crumb Cakes that nabbed the suspect.

Robert Lee McKiernan, 35, of Cedar Rapids, was arrested Tuesday after an incident in which authorities say he stole a box of Hostess Ho Hos and a box of Cinnamon Crumb Cakes from a barn at an Amish farm near Hazleton, in northeast Iowa.

The local sheriff's office said deputies got a description of a car and stopped it about 2 miles from the home.

Deputies found the stolen snack cakes in the car along with materials used to make methamphetamine, the sheriff's office said.

McKiernan was charged with possession of meth ingredients, burglary, theft, criminal trespass, driving while barred, driving under suspension, driving without insurance and fraudulent vehicle registration.

I thought it was odd too... but then again, it could be why they were hidden in the barn instead of in the house!

Maybe they are reformist Amish -- allowed to eat junk food. :)
