It was a clue the police could not ignore. While gathering evidence in the case of a vehicle break-in, they noticed a bit of marinara sauce smeared on the driver’s side interior door handle.
What did it mean? Who leaves perfectly good marinara sauce on their fingers without licking it off? It was a question that would have to be answered, and quickly.
Meanwhile, another automobile was burglarized close by and a pizza box was found inside that car. Whoever had been stealing stuff from the cars was also eating a delectable pizza as they did so.

According to NBC 2, in still another automotive burglary, a pistol and concealed carry permit were stolen. Shortly after the multiple thefts, a homeowner reported a man going door to door and asking if anyone wanted to buy a gun.
In one case, a woman said she had thrown out some leftover pizza and Smith had retrieved it from her garbage to eat. Flash forward to a short time later, when police say 38-year-old Dewey J. Smith was found walking down a sidewalk carrying the ID and credit cards of several victims.
Some of the cards had already been used to fraudulently acquire merchandise. When interrogated about the evidence, the man admitted to the crime spree, saying “you caught me red handed”.
Smith was arrested and charged with armed burglary, burglary of a car, fraudulent use of a credit card, firearm theft, possession of a firearm by a felon and dealing in stolen property.
