SEATTLE, April 17 (UPI) -- Seattle police said a man in a wheelchair with multiple shoplifting arrests was busted at a store while wearing nothing but cherry tomatoes on his crotch.

The Seattle Police Department said officers were called to a store just after 6:20 a.m. Friday on a report of a man causing a disturbance -- and they arrived to find the suspect in the produce aisle with his pants on the floor and a pile of cherry tomatoes over his genitals, KOMO-TV, Seattle, reported Wednesday.

The man, who was arrested on suspicion of burglary, was found to be concealing most of a still-frozen Jimmy Dean sausage sandwich.

Police said the man has numerous previous arrests for shoplifting and told officers he is not allowed inside the supermarket, part of the QFC chain based in Bellevue, Wash.
