Zimmerman's $99 jail shopping list includes Cheez-Its and Pop-Tarts




George Zimmerman has stocked his 67-square-foot cell with a pantry-full of snack food, plus pens, postal cards, toiletries and underwear, according to an inventory obtained by NBC News.

Zimmerman placed the order Tuesday through the jailhouse commissary during his second full day back in custody at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Sanford, Fla. 

The order came to a total of $98.90. His remaining balance is $395.10.

Snacks included, among other food, two orders of White Cheddar Cheez-Its, two orders of Fritos, two orders of Cheetos, four orders of Big Grandma’s chocolate chip cookies, one order of Animal Snackers cookies, two packages of Twix, one package of Peanut M&M’s, and five packages of Strawberry Pop-Tarts.

Zimmerman, confined to solitary and denied a television, apparently plans to spend some of his time writing to loved ones. The inventory lists the following postal cards as separate line items:




The list shows Zimmerman bought two of each card, plus pens, golf pencil, stamped envelopes and a legal pad. 

The order also included thermal tops and bottoms, t-shirts and briefs, plus two orders of ibuprofen, five orders of multivitamin pills, two orders of decongestant and antacid tabs, and Irish Spring soap and Mennen deodorant.

Zimmerman returned to jail Sunday afternoon after a judge revoked his bail two days before, having found that Zimmerman and his wife had misled the court about their finances. Zimmerman earlier pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the Feb. 26 shooting death of teenager Trayvon Martin in a case that has triggered a nationwide debate about whether race factored into the shooting.
