East Brewton Police scored the ultimate “candy crush” Monday after nabbing three in burglary of the city’s little league park.

Chief Kenny Brazile said that the trio – 19-year-old Ethan Cardwell and two juveniles – allegedly broke into the park’s concession stand and stole two duffel bags and a storage locker full of candy, candy bars and other assorted concession items sometime Monday night.

“This was a good investigation,” Brazile said. “We followed the evidence and were able to recover most of the merchandise that was taken. Minus what had been eaten, of course.”

Brazile said the trio did damage the concession stand; however, repairs have been made and the candy returned in time for play this week at the fields.

Cardwell and the two teens – age 14 and 17 – are charged with burglary III, criminal mischief II and theft of property II.

Brazile said that one juvenile is facing a second set of burglary and theft charges after he first broke into the stand between Friday night and Saturday morning.
