A week after a burglary in his Lakewood house, the victim happened to mention to an investigator that he had found a chunk of cheese with strange teeth marks in it. "Freeze it!" advised a delighted Los Angeles County Deputy Sheriff Garth Balthazar. A suspect had been caught, but he denied being anywhere near the scene of the crime. Balthazar gave the dried-out cheese to Dr. Gerald L. Vale, the chief dental consultant to the Los Angeles County coroner.
