I don't even want to think about this but I just had to share.

From The Washington Post:

Woman Arrested in Fudge Robbery After Assault Claim
A sweet tooth proved to be the undoing of a Greenbelt woman visiting Annapolis this week.

Shortly after midnight, Thursday morning, the Annapolis Police Department received a call from a clerk at the downtown Maryland House Hotel, who reported that a woman had come into the lobby and said she had been the victim of a sexual assault.

Officers met with Greenbelt resident Catherine Anne Delgado, 35, and determined that her assault claim was unfounded. During the course of their conversation in the lobby, the officers noticed that Delgado, wearing slacks and a sleeveless white blouse, had large slabs of fudge bulging out of her pockets.

"Smudges of fudge showed up very well on her hands and white blouse," Officer Hal Dalton said. "You don't see something like that every day."

On a hunch, an officer walked over to the nearby Fudge Kitchen on Main Street and found that the front door was unsecured. The Fudge Kitchen owner told police that since closing time a large amount of fudge had disappeared from the store's window display. He did not know why the door was unlocked.

Meanwhile, back at the hotel, Delgado had used the restroom during her interview with police. When a female officer checked the facility, she found that Delgado had tried to flush a large amount of fudge down the toilet, so much, in fact, that the candy clogged the toilet.

Delgado was arrested and charged with burglary. She was being held on $100,000 bond.

Hometown Annapolis has a bit more detail and mugshot goodness:

Ms. Delgado was charged with second-degree burglary and theft of property under $500. If guilty, she could face as much as 15 years in prison for the burglary charge. The theft charge carries a penalty of 18 months in jail and or a $500 fine.

When owner Bob Lawinger entered the store the next morning, he said he was shocked and a bit concerned that his kitchen had been ransacked. But concern soon turned to laughter when he watched the surveillance tape.

"She was just falling all over herself," he said of the video. "She loved the Rocky Road though, she took about 10 pounds of it and ate about a half-pound in the store."

Mr. Lawinger said there was also partially eaten S'mores and nut clusters littering the floor. The 10 bricks of fudge and five M&M pretzel sticks were valued at approximately $89.45. But Mr. Lawinger said she wasted about $500 worth of cookies and candies, tasting everything and dumping out what she didn't like. In addition, he estimates she caused about $1,500 worth of damage to display cases, counters and machinery.

The poor girl just likes her fudge. (wishing that Clorox made brain-bleach)
