The streets of Erie are a little safer today after a man, who has long been suspected of smuggling snacks into Tinseltown, was finally brought to justice. The man was found out after the smell of Mexican food filled the air shortly after the previews began. “We take contraband snacks very seriously,” said the 17 year old usher who discovered the banned burritos. “I shined my flashlight on him and boy was his face red. I think mainly because he was eating a spicy tamale, but I think he was a little embarrassed too.” Once the man was confronted, police immediately swooped in to make the arrest. It’s the first arrest at the theater for sneaking in food, but the beginning of a new zero tolerance policy. “Most of the time people try to sneak in normal movie food and it’s hard to prove,” the usher said. “But its reached a critical point. We now have a special task force at the theater with flashlights and tasers to detain suspects.” Loss prevention is unsure just how much money is lost due to people sneaking in food, but suspect a large amount. That estimate could, however, be upgraded to an extra-large amount for just 25 cents more.
