MT. MORRIS, N.Y. — A trail of macaroni salad led police to three suspected burglars in western New York on Sunday.

Livingston County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Build-A-Burger in Mt. Morris around 6:30 a.m. after the owners reported their surveillance system and cash was missing from the restaurant.

The investigation led to a nearby greenway trail where police found "cash register parts, surveillance system parts, rubber gloves, loose change and a steady trail of macaroni salad."

"It was later discovered that the suspects stole a large bowl of macaroni salad, which they took turns eating, along their escape route," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

On Sunday afternoon, Matthew P. Sapetko, 34, of Mt. Morris; James P. Marullo, 35, of Mt. Morris, and Timothy S. Walker Jr., 23, from Idaho, were each charged with third-degree burglary, third-degree criminal mischief and fourth-degree grand larceny.
