Alleged burglar done in by half-eaten candy bar

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) — A Snickers bar did in one Arkansas burglar. Police in Jonesboro said Brian D. Bass, 39, left the half-eaten candy bar on a counter at the Cato Animal Hospital during a Jan. 24 robbery.
Detective Jason Simpkins said police sent the chocolate and peanut treat to the state Crime Laboratory in Little Rock, where scientists pulled off a DNA sample.

Simpkins said the DNA matched a sample taken from Bass, who had served time on another charge. The detective said Bass later confessed to the crime during an interview.

Bass now faces felony commercial burglary and theft charges. Sheriff's deputies said Bass remained in Craighead County jail Friday in lieu of $50,000 bond. State officials say Bass was already on probation after most recently serving prison time for being a felon in possession of a firearm.

The Craighead County Public Defender's Office said Friday that Bass had yet to be assigned an attorney.

However, the Snickers bar apparently did not alleviate Bass' hunger.
"It was also discovered that the suspect involved ate two cans of Vienna sausages," Simpkins said.
