Barbecue Sauce Is Urban Camouflage

by | 8th, July 2008

POLICE in Wisconsin say 35-year-old Aaron Maurice broke into the family’s home on North Wilmer while they were sleeping around 4:30 A.M.

Not only was it frightening but police say it was very strange. At the time of the break-in, police say Maurice was whistling and covered in barbecue sauce.

“They thought they heard something in the basement, so they listened for a little bit and they heard what sounded like somebody in the basement whistling,” Sergeant Pat DeWall of the Appleton Police Department said.

Police say the woman living there locked herself in a room with her two-year-old child. Her husband grabbed a shotgun.

“At that point in time he shut off the lights and the person in the basement yelled up to him something to the effect, ‘What are you doing?'” DeWall said.

Police arrived.

When he asked Maurice why he was there, Maurice said he was on the run from the government. And about the barbecue sauce, “The officers asked him that. He told the officers that it was urban camouflage,” DeWall said.
