Chester Cheetah got a burglary suspect busted in South Carolina.

Austin Lee Westfall Presler, 19, was arrested on charges of second-degree burglary this week after deputies in Kershaw County used a trail of Cheetos to track him to a convenience store break-in, Columbia TV station WLTX reported.

Police said Presler shattered the front glass of the Cassett Country Store and stole beer, cigarettes, snacks and energy drinks on Sunday.

He wasn't on the lam long.

Presler apparently opened a bag of Cheetos that spilled on the floor and left a trail leading to his front porch, according to NortheastColumbia.Patch.com.

Deputies said they found Presler inside with the stolen items.
