A half-eaten cinnamon roll led a State Department of Corrections officer to the man who stole his vehicle early Monday morning, Madison police said.
A Wisconsin correctional officer got to Madison around 4:25 a.m. for training, and parked his car, with the keys still in the ignition, just outside of a hotel in the 4800 block of East Washington Avenue, according to a release.
When the officer went into the hotel, he heard his car starting up and saw it leaving the lot, officials said. The officer didn?t see the person stealing his vehicle, but the hotel?s surveillance cameras led him to a partially-consumed cinnamon roll in the parking lot.
The officer could see the man on the surveillance footage eating the cinnamon roll before he got into the car and drove away, according to the release.
