I don't know how they get by with it over there in England Can anyone explain? Why not let the reporter have there name there under the by-line in the paper. I bet whoever wishes they had a more serious story to cover. I pick these because they are funny,and sometimes we need a little lighthearted stuff, since we usually talk heavy stuff. So hope you get a laugh out of this.

Talk about a sweet tooth! Dumb 'burglar who grabbed chocolates during a break-in' leads police straight to his door... with a trail of candy wrappers.

The escape of an alleged burglar turned out to be short and sweet.

Jose Lopez Jr, initially got away scot-free after breaking into a party shop, but was caught after detectives followed a trail of candy wrappers, authorities say.

The suspect allegedly forced his way into the shop in Eloy, Arizona, before making off with a safe containing cash and jewellery, as well as some chocolate bars that were on display.

This must surely "be up there" along with the beer thief who tripped over his own underwear while running away with said crate of beer, smashing everything in the process, the bank robber who shoots himself in the foot or...or...Bueller?.....Bueller....? Hansel and Gretel on mind-altering candy!
Yep, that'd do it. Or maybe the candy was just THAT GOOD?

LOL! The lesson here is, never break in and steal candy when you're stoned.
