A Rock Hill, SC McDonalds went on a wild goose chase for a pilfered container of whipped cream that went stolen.  This led to the arrest of an Ambler, Pennsylvania man.  Around 3:00 a.m., police were summoned to the McDonalds on 115 South Cherry Road where the restaurant manager informed police that she saw a man exit the restaurant in a white van with a spare tire attached to the rear.  He allegedly took the can of whipped cream.

When police patrolled the area, they found a 1995 white GMC van with a 38-year-old man sitting inside.  Marijuana smoke was allegedly billowing out of the car, according to police. 

When police searched the interior of the car, and the man’s jacket, the report states that they uncovered a pipe and a blue plastic container with marijuana inside. The man was charged with possession of marijuana.  The police did not state whether they found the missing can of whipped cream reported by the McDonald’s employee.  Nevertheless, he was not charged with the theft.
