A messy caper involving teens and chocolate ended with a lesson in the law.
On Tuesday, police in Fairfield found something they had likely never encountered before when they were called to 1583 Post Road and found a crew of teens covered in a brown, gooey mess.
At first, police weren’t sure what they had stumbled upon, the Connecticut Post reports. Once they did a little investigating, police realized nothing illegal was going on, just something sloppy.
The 15- and 16-year-olds had purchased chocolate syrup at Rite Aid and gone from sipping it to squirting it at each other.
Police took the names of the gang of chocolate bandits, but sent them home with a warning.
