Breakfast food is one of the seven wonders of the world. But when there isn’t a diner open close to you and you’re all out of eggs and bacon, what's a person to do?
Evidently, when a Florida man faced this conundrum, he thought a decent solution would be to use someone else’s house to make breakfast. That’s correct! Pinellas County investigators have confirmed that 19-year old Gavin Crim was caught red handed- well, with a spatula in it- after breaking into a Safety Harbor home on September 5th, shortly after 4 p.m.
According to reports, Gavin let himself inside the home after the front door was unlocked. Unlike other burglars, however, the teenager wasn’t trying to stela anything. In fact, all valuables were untouched by the time authorities arrived. Rather, what the burglar did was head straight for the kitchen to start chowing down on a snack.
The story gets even funnier! The homeowner obviously heard Gavin making a ruckus in the kitchen. So, when they came down to investigate, the teen simple instructed the stranger, “Go back to sleep.”
Unfortunately for Gavin, however, they threatened to call police instead. This prompted the teen to run from the house, though the sheriff’s department later arrested him in a swampy, wooded area behind the house.
Though the boy admitted to his crime, it remains unclear why he decided to cook breakfast at a stranger’s home versus his own. The police report confirms the teen had been under the influence of alcohol at the time, but there was no mention of any other substances. Gavin was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, though he has since been released on a $1,000 bond.
Although it doesn’t seem like this teen had a good reason for breaking into the person’s home, it is a well-known fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
According to WebMD, for instance, its various health benefits include kickstarting your metabolism, increasing memory and concentration, lowering cholesterol, and reducing the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
So, perhaps Gavin’s defense lawyers will argue he was just trying to make sure he got his most important meal of the day… or maybe not. Given that the teen was breaking and entering at 4 p.m., we don’t think there’s any solid defense that could explain his hilarious actions.
