According to an arrest affidavit, 38-year-old Torrey Pannell was arrested for burglary on Dec. 20.

Pannell is accused of breaking into Hot Diggity Dogs on Ewing Avenue in downtown Nashville on Dec. 15, Dec. 17 and Dec. 20.

The owner of the business contacted police on Dec. 17 after her alarm company notified her there was movement from the motion detector.

Once the owner arrived, she found a bag of chips on the ground and reviewed surveillance footage that reportedly showed Pannell stealing another 10 bags. The alarm was disconnected.

A few days later on Dec. 20, Pannell is accused of returning and burglarizing Hot Diggity Dogs again. When police arrived, he was found hiding in the restaurant’s storage shed.

The owner told authorities he is the same man who burglarized the business before on Dec. 15. During that incident, Pannell reportedly more chips as well as French fries.

Pannell was booked into the Metro jail on $30,000 bond where he remains awaiting trial.
