Sounds like some moonbat from Cambridge. After all, only some green/progressive moonbat would remember that the Medford born Mayor of New York City, Bloomberg, banned sugary drinks larger than 16 oz.! The theif probably drank his 8 oz, felt guilty about all that sugar, stuffed the pillow case full of whatever he could STEAL and jumped out the window. CASE SOLVED!
