(Newser) – Now we all love Phish Food, but this is a step too far: Two men recently stole $1,380 worth of Ben & Jerry's ice cream from a truck sitting outside a wholesale center in Sweden, reports the Local. Unfortunately for the sweet-toothed Swedes, they were caught in the act by a security guard, who started chasing them. They ended up ditching their bounty, which had melted during the getaway and "had to be thrown away," says a police spokesperson. One of the robbers, 18, was caught in the chase, but the other escaped and is still at large.
