Is that chocolate on your breath, boy?

Chocolate breath odor

It was the odor of chocolate on the suspects breath that gave away a 15-year-old boy accused of shoplifting candy bars in Bremerton [Washington]. An officer responding to the shoplifting report Friday night caught up with the suspect on a bicycle.

First he denied taking candy bars, but the officer could smell an odor of chocolate and called witnesses who identified the boy.

He confessed and said he was hungry and did it for the thrill.

“It would be wrong to consider that even 1oz per head per week could be ensured,” they stated.

CBS News

A Westchester County teenager is facing a long list of charges after allegedly trying to rob two men and finding out they were undercover police officers.

Yonkers police said the officers were in their unmarked car, doing overnight surveillance work, when Michael Garcia, 19, reached into the driver-side window, grabbed an officer and demanded money.

Police said the two officers got out of the car. They say the unarmed suspect punched and kicked them while trying to avoid arrest. After the fight, all three men were treated at hospitals.
