CAMDEN COUNTY , N.C., Aug. 8 (UPI) -- A North Carolina man who beat police officers in a doughnut-eating contest got his just desserts the next day after they realized that he was a wanted man.

Bradley Herbert entered the cuisine-eating competition at the Elizabeth City Police Department's National Night Out Against Crime and won it by polishing off eight doughnuts in two minutes.

The field that the 24-year-old defeated included local police officers and firefighters.

"I did congratulate him," Lt. Max Robeson told WTKR. "Good for him. He can eat a lot of doughnuts. Good for him."

The day after the contest, officials realized that Herbert was wanted in connection with two break-ins that happened at local grocery stores thanks to story about the suspect's eating prowess.

"When I came in that morning and read that article I was pissed because it's like throwing it in our face," Robeson said. "We've been looking for you for months. I didn't ask him if he won a trophy -- he probably did."

Herbert was charged with two counts of felony breaking and entering and misdemeanor injury to real property.

"It's like he had the audacity to do something like that knowing that he had broken into these places," Robeson said.
