Cops seek culprit in lunchroom Jell-O heist

BREINIGSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — If you ever had your lunch disappear from the office refrigerator, consider what one southeastern Pennsylvania man did: He called the cops.

KYW-TV in Philadelphia reports that Upper Macungie Township police were called Oct. 10.

That’s when, according to a police news release, an employee at Wakefern Food Corp. reported “that an unknown person stole his Jell-O brand strawberry Jell-O snack from the break room refrigerator.”

Police say the 39-year-old victim was angry because this wasn’t the first time someone had stolen his food.

So far, police say the thief hasn’t been caught.

Police say in a news release that the case remains under investigation.
