This bizarre mystery has police scratching their heads and rubbing their tummies.

In previous 'Ohio Stop It' stories we covered multiple ATM theft attempts, a Walmart employee that stole $124,000 in gift cards and a man that robbed a bank with a box of dog treats.  But never have we covered a crime as sweet as this.

Instead of following bread crumbs the Mayfield Heights police department are following a trail of candy wrappers.  Apparently, a woman had a sweet tooth and sticky fingers according to,

A woman stole 84 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and two 12-packs of beer from Circle K around 6:45 a.m. April 24.

This is where the plot gets thicker than peanut butter.  The police were able to track down the candy klepto get away car.  The Cleveland woman who owned the car involved in the alleged butter cup caper said she gave an acquaintance a ride to the Circle K on the day of the convenience store crime.  She then dropped the mystery woman off in Euclid, Ohio where a mystery man picked her up.
