CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (WCNC) -- A Charlotte, North Carolina woman had her son arrested for stealing her Pop-Tarts earlier this week.
According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report, the mother called investigators on Monday to report her Pop-Tarts had been stolen.
She fingered her own son, who is a juvenile, as the culprit.
Neighbor Fred Patrick could not stop laughing when he first learned an arrest had been made over Pop-Tarts. He knows the young boy.
"He seems real nice to me. I mean, he is real respectful," Patrick said.
The report said that the boy was placed under juvenile arrest and was charged with larceny/misdemeanor.
Another neighbor, Tiffany Covington, said in her house, food is there for everyone.
"It would be nice if they asked, but they don't. They are kids," she said.
NBC Charlotte waited over two hours for the mother to come home Wednesday evening. Apparently warned that a reporter was waiting at her front door, she parked her car a block away and slipped into her house through the back.
She emerged only briefly to hurl an obscenity and then slammed the door.
