Omaha, NE - Douglas County deputies say 18-year-old Dalvin Krmpotic stole cookies and chips from the Zesto near 103rd and Blair High Road last month.
They say he also broke into the Cherry Bean Coffee nearby. Deputies say Krmpotic didn't steal anything at the coffee shop but plugged all the drains with socks and turned on the water. That caused $4,000 in damage.
Deputies say they were able to link Krmpotic to the crimes using shoe prints. They found footprints at a break-in at a mobile home park and then connected the dots. An investigator noticed the shoe print pattern at the scene was similar to the one found inside Zesto.
Deputies booked Krmpotic for burglary and felony criminal mischief.
