Pasta and video console stolen

A 22-year-old South Lake Tahoe man was taken into custody for using a pellet gun to intimidate people for money and stealing a video game and a plate of spaghetti, a South Lake Tahoe police officer said.

Noah Cadorette appeared at an apartment on the 2000 block of 10th Street with a pellet gun on Tuesday evening wanting money that someone allegedly owed him, the officer said.

When the person wasn’t there, Cadorette wanted money from two roommates, then took a Playstation 2 game console and a plate of spaghetti, the officer said.

More than four hours later, Cadorette came back to the apartment. The roommates called police while Cadorette was knocking on the door, the officer said.

Police booked Cadorette into custody on charges of violation of probation, threatening crime with intent to terrorize, exhibiting a deadly weapon not a firearm and robbery.
