Georgia police do not waffle when it was time for the arrest of a man accused of stealing five boxes of Golden Malted batter from a former employer, the shed.

Brandon Lee Nelson, 33, was charged with burglary in connection with the theft of 150 pounds of waffle mix, Peachtree City police spokeswoman Lt. Odilia Bergh told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Nelson allegedly sold the waffle mix to various persons, authorities said Thursday.

Nelson had a “stream of buyers who would contact him for the waffle mix, and he would, if contacted,” Bergh told the newspaper. “He is the seller of waffle mix.”

Nelson drove to his former employer’s warehouse in August and stole five boxes of the Golden Malted waffle batter, police said.

The suspect allegedly looked to open the shed after arrival in the facility around 1 pm Aug. 31, the newspaper.

Bergh said Nelson then secretly sold to buyers who contact him about the stolen mix.

The missing waffle mix was reported Sept. 10, according to the report. Nelson was later identified on surveillance video and was arrested in his home, and later that day, Bergh said.

He has since posted bail and been released. It was unclear whether he has a lawyer.
