Barbecue-Covered Man Arrested For Appleton Burglary
"Maurice was also covered in barbecue sauce. When asked why, he told officers it was an urban disguise !!"
A 'sticky' situation was averted when police arrested an Appleton man early Wednesday morning for burglary. Shortly after 4:30am, Appleton police were dispatched to a home in the 1600 block of N. Wilmer Avenue for a report of a burglary in progress. The homeowners told officers they were awakened after hearing a person whistling in their basement. The homeowner, armed with a shotgun, held 37-year-old Aaron Maurice at bay until authorities arrived. Maurice was taken into custody without incident. Asked why he was in the house, Maurice said he was on the run from the government. When officers encountered Maurice, he was wearing his own pants, the female homeowner's jacket and the male homeowner's hat. Maurice was also covered in barbecue sauce. When asked why, he told officers it was an urban disguise.
