The Mystery of the Missing Milk Duds

I had a craving for Milk Duds the other night, and you will not believe what happened as a result. Mark had an appointment out of town, and right before he headed out the door I shouted "Get me some Milk Duds!" which made quite an impact on the evening.

Mark gets to his appointment at a customer's house. He carefully places the Milk Duds on the dashboard, but sadly, he forgets to lock the car doors. The appointment takes approximately one hour. When he goes back to the car, he notices the glove box is open, the GPS is gone and...THE MILK DUDS ARE MISSING!!! I'm sure the Milk Duds in plain view on the dashboard were too tempting to resist.

The police were called immediately. Then Mark decides to drive down the street and see if he could locate the perpetrators. As luck would have it, there was a police car a few doors down. So he got out of the car and walked over to the policeman. And lo and behold, right there in front of the cop were two young men and a ton of stolen goods spread out before them...including the Milk Duds. So Mark yells

"Hey! Those are my Milk Duds!"

The cop advises Mark to step back as he further investigates. It turns out these two young men have been stealing from this particular neighborhood for quite some time. Even their bikes were stolen.

So Mark, in his frustration over the stolen Milk Duds says to the crooks "So, I see you like Milk Duds." They just gave him the stink eye. By now, two more cop cars had arrived. The boys were handcuffed and put into a squad car.

The policeman asked Mark if he could prove that the GPS was his. He was able to prove it by the addresses he had entered into it earlier that day. The cop handed it to him and said he could go. "What about my Milk Duds?" Mark asked. The cop asked if he had proof that they were his, and thank God he still had the receipt! So Mark says, "Well, hand me the Milk Duds, the wife is waiting for these."

The moral of this true (and unembellished) story is - Properly secure your Milk Duds!!!
