‘Cocoa Krispies Bandit’ failed to obey rules for sex offenders


An eastern Kentucky homeowner says a man came into his house and poured a bowl of cereal.

According to WYMT-TV in Hazard, Mark Copeland walked into the kitchen of his family’s home in East Bernstadt and saw 36-yearold Michael White looking into the refrigerator.

Copeland said he put White on the couch and called police. Copeland said he is a truck driver and the only reason he was home Monday was because a load he was scheduled to haul was cancelled.

White — who Copeland dubbed “ the Cocoa Krispies Bandit” — was charged with public intoxication, resisting arrest, giving a false name or address, criminal mischief, and failure to comply with sex offender registration.
