We all know the cliché that crime doesn’t pay but this time it did – for the victim. College student, Hunter Jobbins, turned to social media when a Kit Kat bar was stolen from his unlocked car. Jobbins left his parked car in front of his dorm with a Kit Kat in the cup holder. When he returned, 15 minutes later, the candy was gone with a hand scribbled note in its place explaining that the car was unlocked and the thief was hungry.

The maker of Kit Kat saw the posting and promised in a tweet to replace the stolen candy. They took that promise seriously and filled Jobbins car with 6500 Kit Kats, plenty for Jobbins to share with all his friends.

Jobbins holds no grudge against the thief for helping himself to the candy in his car. In fact, he asked the thief to come forward so he could offer thanks, a hug and loads of Kit Kats. This is a crime story where everyone is a winner – Jobbins gets his fifteen minutes of fame, the maker of Kit Kat gets good press and the thief gets a free pass for the crime plus an offer for more of the sweet treats he craves.
