Police: Intoxicated man found eating shredded cheese in family’s home


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) – Police say an Elk Point man was found eating shredded cheese in a family’s utility room early Thursday morning.

Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said a 15-year-old girl was sleeping on a couch in the living room of the home in the 4700 block of W. 17th Place when she heard the man come in the open back door around 2:30 a.m.  

She ran and locked herself in a room where she called police. Clemens said there were other people in the home at the time of the incident.

Officers found 20-year-old Derick Gregory Neuman in the utility room eating the cheese. Clemens said his PBT was .18.

Neuman was arrested for first degree burglary, resisting arrest and underage consumption.

Clemens said Neuman had walked through the kitchen but did not know if he had brought the cheese with him or not.

  1. Looks like they finally caught the infamous shredded cheese bandit.
    Scourge of the Dakota’s.
    Terrorizer of the terracotta.
    The Provolone Purloiner.
    It’s a good thing they caught him before he moved on to harder cheeses, like sliced cheese.
    Shredded cheese is a gateway cheese.

  2. The breaking news on Imran Awan The DNC and Shultz could be broken up into 3 stories instead of this one. Post the 75 high school students in New Jersey blood tested for alcohol after one can of beer landed on game field ( outrageous) instead of this one about a drunkard and cheese.

    1. Send Henry an email with links to the stories and he will more than likely post them. (Sometimes he can’t due to copyright crap)
