Woman Arrested in Fudge Robbery After Assault Claim

A sweet tooth proved to be the undoing of a Greenbelt woman visiting Annapolis this week.
Shortly after midnight, Thursday morning, the Annapolis Police Department received a call from a clerk at the downtown Maryland House Hotel, who reported that a woman had come into the lobby and said she had been the victim of a sexual assault.
Officers met with Greenbelt resident Catherine Anne Delgado, 35, and determined that her assault claim was unfounded. During the course of their conversation in the lobby, the officers noticed that Delgado, wearing slacks and a sleeveless white blouse, had large slabs of fudge bulging out of her pockets.
"Smudges of fudge showed up very well on her hands and white blouse," Officer Hal Dalton said. "You don't see something like that every day."
On a hunch, an officer walked over to the nearby Fudge Kitchen on Main Street and found that the front door was unsecured. The Fudge Kitchen owner told police that since closing time a large amount of fudge had disappeared from the store's window display. He did not know why the door was unlocked.
Meanwhile, back at the hotel, Delgado had used the restroom during her interview with police. When a female officer checked the facility, she found that Delgado had tried to flush a large amount of fudge down the toilet, so much, in fact, that the candy clogged the toilet.
Delgado was arrested and charged with burglary. She was being held on $100,000 bond.
