Doctors often warn of the health risks of eating junk food, but it seems the treats can be a problem for burglars, too.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Four teenagers broke into a gas station early Wednesday and left a trail of candy bar wrappers along the road as they left, said Cpl. Mark Shawkey, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police Department. A police dog located the teens a quarter-mile away.

“Never heard of a K-9 having that extra help in completing a track,” Shawkey said.

Three boys and a girl, ages 15 and 16, were charged with burglary and theft. They were not named because of their ages.

Shawkey said the teens stole candy, chips and cigars from the BP station.

Most of the junk food was found scattered around the road where they were apprehended.
