An apparent ring of thieves has made off with more than 1,200 pints and ice cream bars from delis and drug stores. The New York Times reports CVS used locks to try to keep the culprits out.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne with a summer story about hot ice cream. An apparent ring of thieves in Manhattan has made off with more than 1,200 pints in ice cream bars from delis and drug stores for a quick - very quick - resale. Police are hot on the trail, but The Times reports one Duane Reade actually trained its security camera on the ice cream cooler, to no avail. Some CVS stores have better luck with locks. It's MORNING EDITION.
