ATLANTA (AP) – A Georgia man is accused of stealing 150 pounds of waffle mix from a former employer and flipping it to a syrupy stream of buyers.

Peachtree City police spokeswoman Lt. Odilia Bergh told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday that 33-year-old Brandon Lee Nelson is charged with burglary.

Police say Nelson drove to his former employer’s storage facility in August and stole five boxes of Golden Malted waffle batter. Bergh says Nelson then covertly sold it to buyers who contacted him about the stolen dough.

Bergh says Nelson later was identified on surveillance video of the theft and arrested this month. He has since posted bail and been released. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
