This arrest was pretty sweet.
And that's pretty much the only pun or knowingly bad joke we haven't made already about a report from Collingswood Patch that police may have finally caught . (Seriously – our original article has everything from "that's crumby" to police finding the suspect's account "full of holes.")
Locals had been trying to figure out for some time who was dropping off delicious debris at So local cops went on a two-day stakeout to see where the doughnuts were coming from.
(Yes, we know. Doughnuts and cops. We already beat you to that one in the original piece, too).
Ultimately, police say, they found an Oaklyn resident (and Dunkin' Donuts employee) dropping off the 50-pound bags of treats (which also included trash and hairnets). That person's only been charged in the most recent dumping incident so far, and police are talking to Dunkin' Donuts employees as they continue to investigate the pattern of dumping that prompted their investigation.

Each Monday, Patch takes a peek at some of the more surprising, shocking, stunning and occasionally silly police-related incidents reported throughout New Jersey for "OMGs from NJ PDs." Some of the other reports:
Not Thinking Big: You know, if you're going to break into a bunch of cars, you can probably do better than just ripping off the loose change you find in the dash, . Not that Patch, its OMGs column, AOL or any of the people you might want to sue and/or criminally charge for encouraging theft endorse breaking into cars in the first place. No siree. We have a firm anti-break-into-cars policy here at Patch. We just mean that statement in the, "If you're going to bang your head into a concrete wall, you should probably wear a helmet," sort of way.
The Truth Will Set You Free; A Lie, Not So Much: We're thinking Lakehurst police had better things to do as Hurricane Irene was hitting their area than . Police say a woman claimed a man with a knife opened her car door, demanded her money and made off with $400 – but the woman later admitted she made the whole thing up. We're sure the officers involved loved spending their time on that one. It's not like there were any real emergencies to deal with.
If All Your Friends Jumped Off the Second Floor of the Livingston Mall ... Police say that's exactly what one alleged con man did when the con-ees caught on and started chasing him. . Things didn't turn out so well for him – he fractured his spine. Police say they plan to charge him just as soon as he gets out of the hospital, though they still have to determine his name. Officers say they're pretty sure that when he provided them with a name, he was, well, conning them.
