Burglar Takes A Cake

Posted: Updated:

A burglar is caught making a "sweet" getaway. He literally takes the cake!

The pastry-loving perp, Shea Martin, is caught on surveillance stealing a cake from the Madonna Inn. The cake, according to police, was a custom made cake for a customer that cost $35.

The owner of inn, Connie Madonna-Pearce, posted the footage on Facebook.

A caller then identified Martin. Martin eventually told police he was going to turn himself in, but he never showed.

A few days later, an unknown woman visited the bakery and paid for the stolen cake.

Madonna Inn had originally planned to press charges, but have since dropped them.
