BETHLEHEM, Pa. (AP) – Police say a Pennsylvania teen’s sticky fingers have landed him in jail after a candy bar wrapper with his fingerprints on it was recovered from a stolen car.
Bethlehem police say 18-year-old Kyle Deon Dees was arrested Thursday after officials pulled his fingerprints off a Twix candy wrapper left in a car stolen earlier this month.
The Express-Times of Easton (
http://bit.ly/I3cnRY) reports the car was swiped April 6 after being left running in an apartment complex parking lot. It was found three days later with the candy inside.
Dees faces charges of theft and receiving stolen property. Online court records don’t list an attorney for him.
