What would you do for a Klondike bar?

Would You Go to Jail?
That’s just what happen to Richard Cram, 65. Tuesday night caper involving the popular ice cream snack, police said. A store owner said the man with the munchies also pocketed 99 cents worth of Raman noodle soup and 49 cents worth of Famous Amos cookies.
The owner of the Fort Pierce Food Mart/Texaco in the 2000 block of Seaway Drive told police he watched Cram walking "suspiciously" in the establishment.
Cram crammed a package of Raman noodle soup and some Famous Amos cookies in his pocket, police said. When the owner approached Cram, of the 2400 block of South Ocean Drive, he reportedly removed the goods and tossed them on a shelf.
Next, Cram selected something at the ice cream cooler and tried to leave, police said.
"(The owner) stopped him before he reached the door," the report states. "Cram then removed a Klondike ice cream bar in his rear pants pocket and offered to pay $69 for it."
Police noted the $1.29 Klondike bar looked "flattened."
A witness said he saw the owner approaching and yelling at Cram and saw Cram appear to pull things from his pants and throw them on a shelf.
