A lovesick bear burgled a California home in search of chocolates and champagne, California broadcaster KTVU reports.
Last Saturday, San Bernadino deputies attended a San Antonio Heights home in response to a breaking and entering call. The stunned residents had found a bear raiding their fridge, and immediately dialed the emergency services.
Sergeant Tom Alsky told KTVU the sweet-toothed intruder had eschewed the healthy choice, pushing aside vegetables in a single-minded search for the chocs. The ursine romantic had also attempted to open a bottle of champagne, apparently without success.
At press time, local florists could not recall any telephone orders placed by gruff-voiced customers.
