Escaping groper leaves behind trail of curly fries for police to follow

There are a lot of incriminating things criminals can leave behind at crime scenes: fingerprints, hair follicles, bullet casings. And now, add to that list Arby’s curly fries.

That was the loose end one man left behind last week in Pennsylvania. The incident happened when the 36-year-old man, who seemed drunk, reached out and groped a woman working at the Arby’s drive-through in East Lampeter Township.

The man then sped away, but police found his SUV at a nearby Travel Lodge.

Yorkdispatch.com reports that police then discovered "a trail of Arby’s curly fries and sauce" leading from the man’s car straight to his room.

It’s unclear why the man dropped all the fries; after all, they are delicious.
