A 24-year-old North Pole man is in jail on accusations of breaking into an apartment with a butter knife in order to steal Folgers coffee.

Mark Bojniewicz was arrested on charges of first-degree burglary and fourth-degree theft last week and remains in jail on $500 bail.

Arnold Reed of North Pole became suspicious that someone had been pilfering his coffee after his upstairs neighbor Rebecca Hall said that she smelled coffee in her apartment but knew she didn't have any.

He confirmed his suspicions by setting up a video camera and catching his neighbor's house guest--Bojniewicz--stealing French vanilla coffee from his freezer and hazelnut coffee creamer from his cupboard, he said.

"I've got a lot more interesting things to steal than the coffee," said Reed, a 24-year-old bachelor who declined to name his occupation. "If the guy would have asked me, I would have gave it to him."
