Burglar Done In by Half-Eaten Snickers Bar Left at Scene

A Snickers bar did in one Arkansas burglar.

Police in Jonesboro say Brian D. Bass, 39, left the half-eaten candy bar on a counter at the Cato Animal Hospital during a Jan. 24 robbery. Detective Jason Simpkins says police sent the chocolate and peanut treat to the state Crime Laboratory in Little Rock, where scientists pulled off a DNA sample.

Simpkins says that sample matched Bass, who now faces felony commercial burglary and theft charges. Sheriff's deputies said Bass remained in Craighead County jail Friday in lieu of $50,000 bond.

However, the Snickers bar apparently did not alleviate Bass' hunger.

"It was also discovered that the suspect involved ate two cans of Vienna sausages," Simpkins said.
