Ohio police on the hunt for "Reese's Cup Bandit"

A video still of a Sunoco employee trying to stop the "Reese's Cup Bandit." The suspect eventually escaped the store.

(CBS News) Police are on the hunt for the so-called "Reese's Cup Bandit" in Lorain, Ohio, CBS News Cleveland affiliate WOIO reports.

Police say the man has stolen more than $400 worth of peanut butter cups from the same Sunoco station there.

On Monday night, surveillance video captured the man's image, but he escaped again, thwarting an employee's attempt to stop him, wriggling out of his grasp.

WOIO reports, "The big question investigators are facing is why in the world steal a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup when there are so many other tasty treats staring at you?"
