“A Jacksonville man is facing charges after breaking into a friend’s Pennsylvania home while wearing a yellow Teletubby costume and stealing leftover food.

Dressed as the Laa-Laa character from the BBC children’s series, Terez S. Owens Jr., 20 — a student at Lehigh University from Jacksonville — damaged a door early Sunday in Bethlehem, according to police. They say he went into the friend’s refrigerator and dumped Chinese food into a “man purse” before leaving.

No charges were filed initially. But police Chief Mark DiLuzio tells Easton’s The Express-Times newspaper the home’s occupants apparently changed their minds after the landlord became involved.

DiLuzio says a disorderly conduct and criminal mischief summons will be sent to the 20-year-old suspect — and the unusual nature of the case isn’t lost on him.

He says: ‘Not that many Teletubbies get arrested. You can’t make it up.'”
