Packing Fudge: Woman Arrested For Stealing $70 Worth Of Fudge

A Maryland woman with a purse completely “packed” with fudge was arrested last week in the Maryland House Hotel where she was found, covered in chocolate and crying hysterically, on on a lobby sofa. The sofa was also stained with chocolate.

Catherine Anne Delgado, 35, had “chocolate smeared on her arms and shirt, and there was so much unwrapped chocolate in her purse that it was spilling out onto a hotel sofa.” Delgado had apparently tried to flush the bricks of fudge down a hotel toilet, which, according to the police report posted on The Smoking Gun, “stopped up the toilet.”

In addition to the fudge she had also stolen 5 M&M pretzel sticks. Half-eaten cookies were found at the scene of the crime. Someone call Encyclopedia Brown, there may be more to this case than meets the eye…
