If the grill wasn’t lit, you must acquit

In his defence, he was really hungry:

A Halifax man is facing charges for allegedly being a bad thief and an even worse cook.

Police say the 18-year-old man broke into a home, stole ribs from a freezer in the garage, and started the homeowner’s barbecue to cook up a meal.

The homeowner woke up at 5:08 a.m. and saw flames near his garage. When he went to investigate, he discovered the ribs burning on his barbecue and called police.

“The victim was able to extinguish the fire, however the meal was a total loss,” police said.
