FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - What would you do for a Klondike bar?

Authorities say a Treasure Coast man shoved one down his pants
and then offered a store owner $69 not to turn him in for
shoplifting.

The owner of a Fort Pierce Texaco station told police that
65-year-old Richard Cram tried to sneak the Klondike bar, along
with packages of Ramen noodles and Famous Amos cookies, out of the
store without paying Tuesday night.

When the store owner confronted Cram as he tried the leave the store, the owner reported that Cram pulled the flattened ice cream snack out of his back pocket and offered the owner $69 for it.

The owner called police, and Cram was charged with retail theft
and violation of probation charges. He was being held on $500 bail.
