      Police: Munchies prove costly for burglar

      Police say an intoxicated man who broke into a St. Louis-area church might have gotten away with it if not for a case of the munchies.

      Police say an intoxicated man who broke into a St. Louis-area church might have gotten away with it if not for a case of the munchies.

      The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 24-year-old Andrew Steven Jung of St. Charles is charged with three felonies and jailed on $30,000 bond following the March 8 break-in of the St. Peters Catholic Church in St. Charles.

      Responding officers found that a deep freezer had been damaged, and ice cream had been taken. Jung was spotted walking about three blocks from the church -- intoxicated and with ice cream on his face and clothing.

      Court documents show that Jung is on probation for burglarizing another church nearby.
