Police said a pack of bubble gum bandits is walking into suburban Detroit gas stations and chewing through the candy aisle. Police said the latest heist happened Nov. 21, when two suspects chatted up the clerk of a Speedway gas station in Sterling Heights, while a third suspect filched $318 worth of gum.

The Detroit Free Press said police in Warren and Madison Heights also reported similar thefts at gas stations.

No injuries have been reported in any of the incidents.
