POLICE: Candy Wrapper Trail Led To Teen Suspects

Five Florida teens face burglary-related charges after police followed a trail of candy wrappers from the crime scene back to the house of one of teens.

Officers responded to a break-in Tuesday in Palm Bay on Florida's central Atlantic coast. An officer then followed a trail of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups packages in the backyard.

The officer noticed another wrapper on the front porch of a house near the victim's house.

Officers found several juveniles at the other house. Police say the teens confessed to the burglary and informed officers that the stolen property was in the attic.

Three of the teens face armed burglary charges and two others face charges of resisting arrest without violence and tampering with evidence.
