somebody's a fudge packer....

Methinks Officer Robert Galusha might be quite the candy eater, too.

I hate to say it, but if I were ever arrested, it would be for something like this....


AUGUST 6--A Maryland woman who had fudge packed in her purse was arrested last week on charges that she burglarized an Annapolis candy store. Catherine Anne Delgado, 35, was nabbed after police responded to the Maryland House Hotel, where they found her crying in the lobby. According to an Annapolis Police Department report, Delgado had chocolate smeared on her arms and shirt, and there was so much unwrapped chocolate in her purse that it was spilling out onto a hotel sofa. Eagle-eyed Officer Robert Galusha recognized the fudge "to be of the same type which is sold at A.L. Goodies" a block from the hotel. A check of the candy store revealed a break-in, which was captured on several surveillance cameras. As cops investigated, Delgado unsuccessfully tried to flush fudge bricks down a hotel toilet. The "large amount of fudge" clogged up the toilet, reported police. Delgado was charged with swiping ten fudge loafs valued at about $70 and five M&M pretzels worth $19.45. Annapolis cops snapped the below photo of Delgado before transporting her to a local detention center.

I have tried and tried to put this out of my mind ... I will never be able to read the arrest section of the paper again, or be able to go into a candy store without this ingrained in my brain ... and to think I use to go get candy in the store to check women out. You ruined my dating life ...
