A home burglary in Alpena, Mich., was solved pretty quickly, thanks to some literal icing. Cops say a woman broke into a home early Sunday, knocking over a tray of cupcakes and other items before she fled when the homeowner confronted her, Michigan Live reports. Police found the suspect a few blocks away from the burglarized home, "highly intoxicated and [with] cupcake frosting and cake all over her torso and legs," per the police report. She was booked into Alpena County Jail on charges of unlawful entry and malicious destruction of property. (A Chicago woman was accused of hurling cupcakes at her hubby.)
