LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- St. Matthews Police say a man's sweet tooth drove him to steal all kinds of candy -- even from an area Little League.
According to an arrest report, someone called police claiming that there was stolen property in an apartment on Shelbyville Road, near N. Hubbards Lane.
When officers arrived, they knocked on the door of the apartment belonging to 20-year-old Anthony Cornelson, who invited them to come in.
Police say officers confronted him about alleged stolen property, and he showed them several bags full of candy, telling them he bought it from someone for $10.
He was then read his rights and allegedly confessed to breaking into the concession stand and garage at the community center on Ten Pin Lane, near Shelbyville Road. The center hosts the St. Matthews Little League.
Police say he also was in possession of merchandise taken from the St. Matthews Batting Machines at the corner of Shelbyville Road and Bowling Blvd.
According to the arrest report, Cornelson was found with 20-30 gallon-sized, zip-locked baggies containing a variety of candies, including Sour Punch, Ring Pops, Twix, Starburst and Dubble Bubble.
Police also allegedly found a Troy Bilt 21' lawn mower, bolt cutters, 20-30 bottles of Pepsi and Mountain Dew, batting machine tokens and walkie talkies.
Cornelson was arrested and charged with three counts of burglary and one count of possession of burglary tools.
