Sweet Toothed-Burglar Takes The Cake, Some Cookies Too

You've heard of the cat burglar, but are you ready for the cake burglar?

Presumably following a trail of crumbs, police are searching for a Christmas Day Burglar with a severe sweet tooth after a burglary at a Victorian shopping centre.

The alleged thief forced entry to a shopping centre in Doncaster East on Reynolds Road via a side door at about 2pm, before going to town on the deserts inside.

Police say he raided a number of food stores in the centre's food court, stealing cookies, ice cream and a cake.

Police wish to speak with a man pictured wearing just dark shorts and thongs, described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his early 30s with dark hair and a medium build.

So yes, we've ruled out the Cookie Monster.
