Five boys were arrested yesterday on suspicion of stealing charged with burglary to a vehicle yesterday after $500 worth of assorted boxes of candy, cookies and snacks were stolen from an unattended Lance Inc. food truck, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The boys, ranging in ages from 11 to 15, admitted to the crime, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jon Powers said.
The crime took place late last night when two of the boys, 11 and 15-year-old brothers, saw the truck in a parking lot on Darlington Road. The older brother took a neighbor’s crowbar and pried the padlock off the truck’s rear door. Both brothers took a carton of candy, leaving a 50-pound box of Milky Way bars on a bench in front of a Winn Dixie supermarket, according to the police report.
The brothers later told the other boys what they had done. The materials stolen were a case of Milky Way bars, boxes of cheese crackers, popcorn and a carton of chocolate crème-filled cookies, according to Jon Powers.
