A Vernon man's quest for a midnight snack was interrupted by an officer responding to an alarm call early Thursday morning, according to an arrest report.
The alarm went off at 12:19 a.m. at the Subway sandwich shop at 69 Windsor Ave. - Route 83 - according to an arrest report. An officer arrived in the parking lot and saw Michael Anthony Smith, 23, standing near a smashed-in window, grabbing snack-sized bags of chips, according to an arrest report.
Smith lives down Route 83 - at 173 Talcottville Road - police said.
Smith was detained at the scene and then arrested after a brief investigation, police said.
For the incident, he was charged with:
• Third-degree burglary.
• First-degree criminal mischief.
• Two counts of sixth-degree larceny.
Police also charged Smith with possession of less than 4 ounces of marijuana, an arrest report indicates.
He was being held on a $7,500 bond while awaiting a Thursday court appearance, police said.
Police said he used a piece of firewood to break the window, likely from an adjacent hardware store.
Smith apparently took the healthy route - Sun Chips and Baked Lay's potato chips were the items allegedly taken, according to an arrest report.
