Lorain County, OH (WOIO) - Ohio police are on the hunt for the so-called "Reese's Cup Bandit," whom authorities say has swiped hundreds of dollars worth of the chocolate and peanut butter treats over the last few months.

The Reese's Cup Bandit is bold. He walks right in and makes a b-line for his chocolate fix: two milk chocolate peanut butter cups wrapped in a pretty orange wrapper. He's snatched this treat before but each time he gets away with his hands full of the dark peanut butter cups of joy.

But this time, Sunoco authorities are ready for him. The employee behind the counter made a daring leap and foiled the master plan of the Reese's Cup Bandit, even though he's still too skinny to catch and hold.

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

The bandit has so far stolen more than $400 worth of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. He's 5'10", wears black clothes and a hoodie, and looks to be about 140 pounds.
