'Frito Bandito' Arrested in Fresno After Frito-Lay Truck Heist

The Frito Bandito is out and about in Fresno, folks...

That's where police arrested an unidentified suspect on Thursday, who they say attempted to rob a Frito Lay delivery truck driver... at knife point.

The incident occurred around 3 AM as the driver was dropping off a shipment of chips at a local store, according to the Fresno Police Department. The suspect, who was holding a knife, approached the driver and demanded a bag of Fritos...

But instead of complying, the driver ran into the store to call 911 as the would-be Fritos thief climbed into his truck and began rounding up several bags of the salty snack, according to police.

The suspect was tracked to a nearby Amtrack station, where officers were forced to use "less-than-lethal weapons" to take him into custody, per an arrest report. He's now facing robbery charges.

This comes as Frito-Lay has implemented a voluntary recall of its Ruffles All Dressed potato chips...

The recall was issued after some bags of chips were "inadvertently filled with another flavor of potato chips, potentially exposing buyers to undeclared milk."

This Ruffles recall affects 16 1/8 ounce bags of 'All Dressed' chips. No other sizes or flavors were recalled.

The chips in question were distributed in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.

If you think you may have purchased any of these bags contact Frito-Lay at 1-800-352-4477.
