Shawn Michael Hanley, 19, was arrested yesterday for breaking into a car in Reno, Nevada. His target: a box of munchy, crunchy, chocolatey-tasting Cocoa Puffs, with 10 important vitamins and minerals.

According to a report, officers were called to the apartment complex just after midnight on a report of a man who seemed to be burglarizing vehicles. Officers responded to the scene and set up a perimeter. They saw Hanley walking away from vehicles.

When they walked up to him, officers said he was eating from the box of Cocoa Puffs [and had a] stolen cell phone.

If only it were a box of Cookie Crisp, I could have juxtaposed his mugshot with a video still of that Cookie Crook mascot they got rid of a decade ago.
