Police in Massachusetts have arrested a man they say was so desperate for a sugar fix that he smashed the glass front door of a closed convenience store, left a $5 bill on the counter, and made off with a handful of candy bars.

Foxborough police responded to the burglar alarm at the store at about 2:20 a.m. Thursday and found the front door smashed.

As officers checked the area for a suspect, police were called by security at a nearby shopping center about a suspicious man on the property.

Police tell The Sun Chronicle that 25-year-old Edward Cowen of Taunton matched the description of the robber captured on store surveillance cameras and was arrested.

He was charged with breaking and entering, malicious destruction and larceny from a building.
