Thief’s a li’l squir­rely

New York Post - - NEWS - AP

A squir­rel has been caught on video steal­ing gourmet choco­late and lip balm that a New Jer­sey fam­ily leaves out yearly as a hol­i­day treat for de­liv­ery peo­ple.

Michele Boudreaux of Maple­wood says on her blog she pro­vides candy, tis­sues, lip balm and other good­ies on her doorstep.

This year, her bas­ket was raided within hours. The thief seemed to be tar­get­ing pricey stuff, in­clud­ing Ghi­rardelli choco­late squares.

The fam­ily set up a video cam­era and spot­ted the varmint Tues­day. They now have the choco­late in a jar that re­quires op­pos­able thumbs.
