Grove City Juvenile Escapee Stole Some Cheetos, Police Say


A boy who briefly escaped from a western Pennsylvania juvenile detention facility apparently had the munchies.

State police in Mercer say the boy, who isn’t being named because of his age, escaped from George Junior Republic near Grove City by hiding next to a tree on Monday night. Once he was in the clear, police say the boy walked to a nearby Wal-Mart where he stole a $3.49 bag worth of Cheetos about 11 p.m.

Police say staff at the juvenile reform school found the boy walking near the store’s parking lot and returned him to custody.
