Heinous Squirrel Gang stealing Candy Bars

A group of squirrels is driving the owners of one Toronto convenience store nuts, after the rodents have been caught on video stealing chocolate bars. “I always see them sneaking outside the door, looking in my store, and even right at me!” said Paul Kim, owner of Luke’s Grocery.

“They come in and take Crunchies, Crispy Crunch, Wonderbar . . . ” He’s seen pesky thieves slink in every fall for the past nine years — since he’s owned the store — but 2016 showed a spike in the rodent robberies with one to two bandits visiting the Kim family daily. Customers and passersby have tried chasing down the bandits, but when they resort to climbing up a tree, “it’s game over”.
