Bethlehem Police Look for Candy Thief

Same gray-haired man in his 50s is suspected of stealing or trying to steal candy bars from two different Wawa stores in the past week.

 

Bethlehem Police are seeking the public’s help in finding a man suspected of making candy thefts at Wawa convenience stores in the city.

The thief is described as being in his 50s, with gray hair and wearing a blue jacket. On Friday, police released a surveillance photo of the suspect.

Police were called to the Wawa at 741 E. Broad St. about 2 p.m. Tuesday after the suspect tried to run off with 114 candy bars valued at $141.90.

According to police, he tried stuffing them into a black shopping bag, but “got spooked when an employee came out of the restroom and noticed what he was doing.” He fled from the store and got into a silver-colored car.

The same suspect is believed to have made a successful candy theft at the Wawa at Eighth Avenue and Schoenersville Road on Sunday, police said. He was reportedly wearing the same clothing for the earlier theft.

Anyone with information about the identity of this suspect is asked to call the Bethlehem Police Department at 610-865-7187.
