SEYMOUR, Ind. (AP) — Police in Indiana say someone stole about $300 in Halloween candy from an unmarked police car.
The North Vernon Police Department in southern Indiana says officers had just bought the candy and planned to give it away to trick-or-treaters at the police station Friday evening. They were eating lunch Wednesday at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in nearby Seymour when the theft happened.
The Republic of Columbus reports two windows were broken out on the police car. The department says a police badge and ID, a fingerprint kit and a camouflage backpack also were taken from the vehicle. No firearms were stolen.
The stolen candy was about half of what the department had expected to give away. Officers are still planning to hand out treats.
