Georgia criminal defense: Man charged with stealing waffle mix

A Georgia man was recently arrested for allegedly stealing a significant amount of waffle mix. According to police, he intended to sell the stolen mixes, although it is not clear if this particular product held a special significance. Although the product may be somewhat unusual, the charges are still serious, and criminal defense matters should be handled appropriately. 

In late Aug. 2018, the 33-year-old man supposedly broke into a storage shed that belonged to his former employer. He then allegedly removed five boxes containing significant amounts of waffle mix, all of which were the Golden Malted brand. The missing mixes were not discovered until Sept. 10, when police were first notified of the theft of product. In total, 150 pounds worth of waffle mix were reported stolen. 

Police were able to identify the suspect using surveillance video from the storage facility and proceeded to his home later that same day. When confronted, the man purportedly informed police that he had multiple people willing to buy the waffle mix from him. Indeed, he is said to have claimed that he had already sold off everything he had. He was arrested and taken into police custody, but is currently out on bond. 

Charges for theft are a serious matter that can lead to severe criminal consequences. Aside from the obvious consequences of jail time and fines, many are surprised to learn that their eligibility for certain jobs or educational opportunities might also be affected. As such, a thoroughly researched and constructed criminal defense is essential for most Georgia defendants.
