According to police, he took five boxes of Golden Malted waffle batter from a storage shed on Dividend Drive. The mix belonged to Nelson’s former employer, so he knew where it was located, Bergh said.
Nelson allegedly drove to the storage facility about 1 p.m. Aug. 31 and pried open the shed. The missing mix was not reported until Sept. 10, when a surveillance video identified Nelson as the suspect, Bergh said. He was arrested at his home later that day on a charge of burglary.
