“Urban Camouflage”: Home Intruder Caught Covered in BBQ Sauce

For the “sad but true” file:

Police say an Appleton family is still recovering from a scary incident early Wednesday morning when a man covered with barbecue sauce was in their basement.

Investigators 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.

Damn, that is scary.

According to the criminal complaint, the homeowner held Maurice at gunpoint until officers 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.

Sounds like someone went off his meds.

Very unfortunate for all involved.

  1. What a coincidence. This reminds me of my last home invasion. Instead of BBQ sauce, however, I spread Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard on my forehead and chest and knees.
