Hungry teen breaks into home for snack food


SHEBOYGAN (WKOW) -- When you've got a craving for food, it's tough to get it out of your mind. But how far would you go to satisfy that craving?

One Sheboygan teenager broke into his neighbor's home, apparently looking for snack food. Ronald Savela, Jr., 17, faces adult felony charges for attempted burglary, a crime that carries a maximum prison sentence of four years.

According to prosecutors, Savela broke into the same house last year through the same basement window, which is why the homeowner suspected him when he found the window broken again during the week of Nov. 16.

The complaint quotes Savela describing his break-in, saying he smashed the window with a rock and removed the screen. He admitted he was looking for snack food but couldn't find any.

A preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 2.
