Chicken and beer bur­glar’s un­do­ing

LAKE WORTH — Chicken and beer make for a bad bur­glary.

A Florida fam­ily tells po­lice they came home to chicken bones and empty beer bot­tles scat­tered about their kitchen floor and a would-be rob­ber passed out on their couch.

The Palm Beach County Sher­iff’s Of­fice re­ports that deputies found 22-year-old Ja­cob Miller still asleep when they re­sponded Mon­day to the Lake Worth home in South Florida.

Af­ter tak­ing Miller into cus­tody, deputies found nu­mer­ous items of jew­elry on the man that be­longed to the fam­ily.

The Palm Beach Post re­ports that Miller told deputies he went into the home be­cause he needed a place to stay but re­fused to an­swer any other ques­tions.

Miller was charged with bur­glary and theft. Records also showed an open war­rant in Texas for bur­glary.

Fugi­tive’s role in film leads to ar­rest

TA­COMA — A fugi­tive has been ar­rested af­ter fed­eral agents saw his photo in a Washington state news­pa­per that ran a story about a low-bud­get hor­ror movie.

The News Tri­bune re­ports that 44-year-old Jason Stange, a con­victed bank rob­ber, plays a lead­ing role in the movie Marla Mae.

The Olympian news­pa­per ran a fea­ture story on the film Fri­day with photos that showed Stange on the film set in Olympia.

Fed­eral agents tracked down Stange and ar­rested him Fri­day at a res­tau­rant near the set.

Stange pleaded guilty to an armed bank rob­bery in 2006 and was given a prison sen­tence of more than nine years.

A fed­eral pro­ba­tion vi­o­la­tion war­rant was is­sued last year af­ter Stange left a half­way house.

The film’s pro­ducer says Stange will re­main in the film, sched­uled for re­lease next year.—
