A man in Oregon was cited for eating cookies at a convenience store without paying. He was wearing a shirt of Cookie Monster.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A thief at a convenience store wore a disguise. He walked into the store in Forest Grove, Ore., dressed as Cookie Monster and ate half a package of cookies and fled. The next day, the man turned himself in and confessed to eating a cookie - said it was a misunderstanding. Of course it was. Cookie Monster would never have left the other half of the cookie package just sitting there.

UNIDENTIFIED PUPPETEER: (As Cookie Monster) Cookie. Om-nom-nom (ph), nom-nom, oh, nom-nom-nom-nom.
