Thief caught by fingerprints on ramen

A convenience store thief has been apprehended by fingerprints left behind on a container of ramen noodles.


The suspect was booked without detention Monday for allegedly threatening an employee and stealing 700,000 won ($650) in cash.

The alleged thief reportedly frightened the employee and took the cash after eating the ramen in the store, a representative from Busan Jin Police Station said. Police were then able to track him down from the fingerprints on the food container.
