    Detectives: Burglar Ate Officer's Dinner, Left ID in Closed Police Substation
    Boynton Beach Police Department
    Police say Yvelande Jean-Pierre left her wallet with her IDs inside a Boynton Beach substation after breaking in and eating an officer's meal.

    To identify the burglary suspect who broke into a closed Florida police substation and ate an officer's chicken dinner, detectives didn't need to lift fingerprints or get DNA from the discarded meal.

    The ID cards authorities say the suspect left behind did the trick.

    Boynton Beach police said Wednesday that officers arriving for a morning shift at a department substation last week found a broken window and the remains of a hastily eaten chicken dinner scattered in the kitchen.

    Finding a suspect wasn't hard. They say 29-year-old Yvelande Jean-Pierre left behind her wallet, which contained her two identification cards.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    Jean-Pierre is charged with burglary. Court records do not show if she has an attorney.
