Burglar busted thanks to Cheeto dust on her teeth: cops

Evidence Fun

March 5, 2022

She was caught orange-handed!

A woman was busted for a home invasion in Oklahoma — thanks in part to "Cheeto dust" found in her teeth, authorities allege.

Sharon Carr was arrested on a first-degree burglary charge after allegedly committed the dangerously cheesy act Friday at a home in Tulsa, police said.

Cops say they arrived at the home that night, where a mom of two young kids had called 911 to report that another lady had pried a screen off her window and gotten inside.

The snack-loving sneak had already fled — but cops say they found "a bag of Cheetos and a bottle of water on the floor near the open window."

A few seconds later, however, Carr allegedly emerged from the shadows, police told news station KTUL.

The mom ID'd her as the invader — and the bust was further cemented when they found the incriminating orange snack-food residue still stuck in her teeth, the outlet reported.

Cops think she dropped the bag while making her escape.

"A good reminder that Cheeto dust can be pretty hard to get rid of," Tusla police wrote on Facebook.
