A Spartanburg man has been charged after a cupcake shop was burglarized and ransacked earlier this week, according to deputies. 

Peter Russell, 35, has been charged with petit larceny and third-degree burglary in connection with the incident, according to Spartanburg County jail records.

On Sept. 8 a baker at Cupcake Creations on Boiling Springs Road, went to pick up a wedding cake to deliver and heard someone rummaging through the store, according to Spartanburg County deputies. Deputies said as she moved through the store she noticed a man wearing an apron and running from the front door.

The baker said Russell moved everything around in her cupcake shop and even booby-trapped the entrances. She said the man put pots over the doors, knives in the locks and Crisco on the floors.
