Huckleberries: Take the candy to the bathroom, go directly to jail

There aren’t many candy bars out there worth a misdemeanor shoplifting citation, let alone a felony charge. Maybe a Snickers. Or a giant peanut butter cup. But not much else. Which makes Huckleberries wonder about the 72-cent candy bar from Post Falls Super 1 that landed a woman back in the county jug last week. According to Post Falls police, the woman gobbled the candy bar in the store bathroom and then paid for other items before leaving the store. When she was nailed by store security for stealing the candy bar, she lied about her name. Why? She told security that she had been released from jail that morning – and had been warned by a judge that she would be charged with a felony next time she was caught stealing. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. Bikini weather?
