Waveland police are chasing leads to nab a sweet-toothed bandit who stole 340 cases of Little Debbie snack cakes from a storehouse last week.

Police investigator Eddie Peterson tells the Sea Coast Echo that 70 cases of the treats have been recovered. He says some cases were found in Seminary, Miss., about 70 miles north of Waveland.

Police Chief Kenny Hurt says the owner of the storage unit from which the cakes were stolen was a food vendor. The vendor has not been identified.

Hurt says it is unclear if the storage unit was broken into or accidentally left unlocked.
