Candy Caper Crime

G’mornin Friends!
Enough frightening and awful news…
Figured y’all could have a good time captioning this: ha

A California man’s sweet tooth landed him in cuffs.

Jesus Ibarra, 35, was collared Thursday for stealing 7,500 pounds of candy, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department press release.

Investigators began looking into the candy crook when a trucking outfit hired by Mars Candy Company contacted authorities after 7,500 pounds of defective candy scheduled for destruction went missing from a truck.

Police found online ads offering bulk candy for sale both through a Facebook group and on Craigslist.


Admittedly, I feel bad from those he stole from but….of all things…candy? heh

    Well, let’s see – the candy was to be destroyed. This mook took it and listed it for sale. Sounds kind of smart to me. Wonder what was wrong with the candy and if it was safe to eat.

    Call me the Sweet Tooth Bandit!

    But I’d have such a stomach ache, I’d WANT to get arrested. :)

    Defective candy?
    Isn’t that an oxymoron?

    This is EXACTLY what was needed this weekend. Parfait (meant as both a yummy dessert and perfect timing). Also, thx so much for visiting FatScribe recently; happy to post some good films for the year that was 2015!

    Someone could have used it if the only thing wrong was appearance which is my guess. We throw so much good stuff away.

    I just hope I am never tempted by coming across an unguarded truck holding 7,500 pounds of candy. I don’t know what I’d do. And if arrested, how would the other prisoners respond with my answer to their query, “whaddaya in for?”.
