Looks like the cookie's crumbling for two 16-year-old boys with allegedly sticky fingers.
Two juveniles were arrested after Towson Town Center security officers caught the pair jumping over the counter at The Great Cookie and stealing cookies at around 2 a.m. Monday, Baltimore County Police Department spokeswoman Det. Cathy Batton said. The burglars ran away from the store but were caught by responding police officers.
Two days earlier, at about the same time Saturday, burglars stole 24 pounds of cookies—half chocolate chip, half snickerdoodle—from the bakery. A Towson police precinct report incorrectly listed the date of this burglary as Tuesday. Batton said the mix-up occurred because store managers did not call about the incident until that day, after reviewing video surveillance.
Police do not believe the two burglaries are connected, and are unsure how the burglars were able to enter the mall after hours.
Batton said the burglars in the Monday incident stole "much, much less" than 24 pounds.
The Great Cookie was also burglarized of dough in August—$300 cash, that is.
