Dim Crims: Sausage saga

Wielding an eight-inch sausage, Antonio Vasquez allegedly broke into a Fresno home stole $900, and assaulted one resident with the pork weapon and tossed seasoning into another victim's face. According to investigators, Vasquez  invaded the home of a group of farmworkers. Santiago Cabrera told deputies that he was sleeping on the home's front porch when he 'felt something hit him in the face.' Another resident, Cesar Macias, recalled that he was sleeping on a futon in the family room when the intruder threw Pappy's seasoning in his face. The Fresno-based Pappy's specializes in 'high quality all purpose spice blends, sauces and marinades,' according to its web site. Before fleeing the residence, Vasquez, for some reason, removed his shorts, which contained his driver's license, credit cards, school IDs, and cell phone. He ran into a nearby orange orchard, but was soon apprehended by a deputy.
