Latasha Love, N.C. mom, has son arrested for allegedly stealing her Pop-Tarts, report says

At least breakfast cereals have relatively easy-to-understand serving sizes. Pop-Tarts, on the other hand, report nutrition information for one serving, but each package contains two-and is impossible to reseal. Eat both, and this breakfast delivers a quarter of your daily limit for fat, and more than half your added sugar for the day. Two pastries: 420 calories, 16g fat, 26g sugar, 66g carbs. Choose this instead: Your best bet is to eat just one pastry. Or you can try Fiber One's Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastry: 190 calories, 4g fat, 16g sugar, 36g carbs, 5g fiber. Health.com

(CBS) CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Latasha Renee Love, a 37-year-old North Carolina mother, had her son arrested for allegedly stealing her Pop-Tarts, CBS affiliate WBTW reports.

According to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg police report obtained by the station, the mother called authorities and reported her Pop-Tarts were stolen by her juvenile son.

Officers arrested the son and charged him with misdemeanor larceny on last Monday night.
