Pizzeria employee pleads guilty to theft

ELYRIA — An Oberlin man who left a trail of stolen lasagna in his wake pleaded guilty Friday to breaking and entering the Oberlin pizzeria where he worked.

Oberlin police tracked 25-year-old Max Torgerson from Lorenzo’s Pizzeria and Restaurant after the December 2012 burglary by following the distinctive patterns on his shoes and drag marks from a stolen computer to Torgerson’s house. They also found pieces of stolen lasagna scattered around his house.

In addition to the food and computer, Torgerson stole beer, gift certificates and $680 in cash, according to police.

Torgerson also pleaded guilty to failure to register as a sex offender in an unrelated case. He was convicted, along with another man, in 2011 of sending images of them having sexual relations with an underage girl over the Internet.
