TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (67)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Wednesday, June 7; link good at time of posting):
Burglars who stole $30 worth of Skittles and Starburst candy from a Little League concession stand in this Minneapolis suburb left behind an incriminating piece of evidence.

Police found a cell phone inside the building.

According to court documents, sometime after the theft on Saturday night, the phone's owner called the phone and identified himself. Officers arranged to meet him and return the phone, and a witness identified the man as one of the burglars.

. . . .

When officers went to [his accomplice's] door, he chewing on some Skittles. Confiscated from the house were 20 bags of candy and another 20 packages were found in a backpack, the complaint said.
