Some guy from S.C. steals mystery fountain drink from Wawa

Some guy from South Carolina may have stolen a cup of soda from Wawa ... and gotten away with it.

Some guy from S.C. steals mystery fountain drink from Wawa


Let me preface this by saying Chadds Ford is one of those Delaware County towns that doesn't have its own police department. That means it's patrolled by state police, which means every taxpayer in Pennsylvania chipped in a little bit for this investigation:

Here are the verbatim "incident details" from a state police report from Trooper McMurray that was faxed to the Daily News yesterday: "The actor entered WaWa and bought a sandwich. After purchasing the sandwich, the actor went and got a fountain drink. When asked twice if he was going to pay for it, the actor said no, it was water and fled the scene."

That is all.

Sometimes you got to ask yourself whether the crime you just witnessed is really worth making that call to the cops. But if anyone wants to solve this, the soda snatcher (or could it really have been water?) reportedly drove away in a brown Chevy Impala with South Carolina tags.
