Big Theft, Candy Riches
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the NPR police blotter.
Somebody stole a Big Boy in Ohio. The 7-foot tall restaurant mascot disappeared. It showed up on the roof of Lincoln High School. Then there's the man caught with a stolen truck in Dallas. He was removing rims and tires when police caught him. It is not clear if he realized the value of the cargo he was about to ditch. It was quarter-million dollars worth of Skittles. Some of the candy is still at large.
It's MORNING EDITION.
