Man In Arizona Charged With Robbery For Burrito Heist

An Arizona man–who allegedly stole another man’s burrito earlier this month–ended up being arrested and charged with robbery, according to police.

 A 29-year-old homeless man by the name of Timothy Bell was in Phoenix on November 16, which is when he supposedly threatened a man on the street and took his Mexican food “by force” around 8:40 p.m.

That’s when the victim called 911 as Bell fled the scene, according to court documents published by KPHO-TV. He followed the suspect until he was taken into custody by authorities.

When Bell was finally stopped by police, they discovered a “wrapper from [the] burrito he stole.” In the report, the stolen item was listed as “a burrito, of a value less than $1,000.” He was booked at the Maricopa County jail on a felony robbery charge on no bond.

Timothy Bell is scheduled to be arraigned on December 6.
