FYI, 200 Bloomfield Ave is the University of Hartford. A little homework's always advisable.

Sadly, this story shows how irrelevant West Hartford Patch has become.

Stealing Skittles??? Larceny? Third degree burglary? The cop should have bought them each a bag of candy & took them home. This is insane!!!
