Russian man sledgehammers through a wall to steal chocolate, then feels ashamed and lies that it was beer
An 18-year-old man in Kemerovo, about 2,280 miles east of Moscow, has been arrested for using a sledgehammer to break into a store, where he stole handfuls of chocolate. According to local police, the man spent three hours smashing one of the store's walls, before he finally made a hole large enough that he could squeeze through.
When the store manager discovered the theft, he called the police, who soon apprehended a suspect who confessed to breaking in and stealing beer and coffee.
An inventory check later revealed that no coffee or beer was missing, however, and the young man then admitted that he'd actually taken ten chocolate bars, lying about the beer and coffee because he was embarrassed about his sweet tooth. He says he ate the candy immediately after stealing it.
The man has been charged with theft and faces up to five years in prison.
