Warrant issued for alleged Teddy Grahams burglar

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a White City man who allegedly broke into a business to try and eat Teddy Grahams snack cookies.

Kaidyn John Weigert, 19, failed to appear in court this week on charges of second-degree burglary and second-degree theft. A warrant was issued for his arrest in the Teddy Grahams case, as well as for separate cases involving methamphetamine possession, heroin possession, third-degree theft and unlawful entry into a motor vehicle. 

On Jan. 9, Weigert allegedly broke into the White City Laundromat on Crater Lake Highway and stole a lock for the business doors, according to an affidavit by a Jackson County Sheriff's Office deputy.

He was captured on video surveillance entering the laundromat's office area, the affidavit said.

The same day, the deputy was able to track Weigert down at his parents' residence, where he allegedly admitted to taking the lock, the affidavit said.

"He also said he broke into the office to get the bag of Teddy Grahams that was inside because he was hungry," the affidavit said. "It turned out the bag was already empty."

The deputy took Weigert into custody and he was lodged at the Jackson County Jail, the affidavit said.

Weigert was released from jail on his own recognizance Jan. 11. He failed to attend arraignment hearings in Jackson County Circuit Court in February and again this week, triggering the arrest warrant, according to court records.

The affidavit did not detail what flavor of Teddy Grahams had been in the bag.

The bear-shaped snack cookies come in flavors that include honey, cinnamon, chocolate chip, chocolate and birthday cake.

Nabisco says Teddy Grahams are "lovable" and "bring fun and discovery to snack time."
