CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (WCNC) -- A Charlotte, North Carolina woman had her son arrested for stealing her Pop-Tarts earlier this week.
According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report, the mother called investigators on Monday to report her Pop-Tarts had been stolen.
She fingered her own son, who is a juvenile, as the culprit.
Neighbor Fred Patrick could not stop laughing when he first learned an arrest had been made over Pop-Tarts. He knows the young boy.
"He seems real nice to me. I mean, he is real respectful," Patrick said.
The report said that the boy was placed under juvenile arrest and was charged with larceny/misdemeanor.
