A Bakery Thief Takes Nothing But Recipes
Ry Stephen makes Cuffins, a hybrid of a Muffin and a croissant that people go nuts over. Now, the tempting sweet may have inspired a crime. Overnight last week, a thief stole the recipe for cruffins, and Mr. Stephen’s 230 other recipes, from binders in the bakery’s kitchen. Nothing else in the store was touched: not money, valuable baking equipment, an iPad or other computers. And while Mr. Stephen has copies of the recipes on his office computer, and the store opened almost on time the next morning, he was understandably upset. “It sickens me a bit,” he said. “Burglaries happen pretty often in San Francisco,” said Grace Gatpandan, a spokeswoman for the Police Department, as for a suspect, she said, “We don’t have a particular demographic, except it’s someone who wants to make a really delicious pastry.” Get the full story here.
Man Calls 911 To Report Wife Stole His Cocaine
An Ohio man called 911 to report that his wife had stolen his cocaine, according to cops who subsequently arrested him on drug and other charges. Robert Collins, 39, dialed the police emergency line late Wednesday night to report the cocaine theft, according to an Alliance Police Department report that does not detail the wherabouts of Collins’s spouse or the cocaine. When officers arrived at Collins’s residence, he apparently had a change of heart and “refused to tell police why he called 911.” Investigators reported that Collins, who “had a pipe used to smoke marijuana in his possession,” was “arrested and charged with misuse of 911 and drug paraphernalia.” He also had an active arrest warrant in connection with a 2013 criminal case.
