The phrase “taking candy from a baby” means that someone did something super easily.
One New Haven tried to test that theory over the weekend. He learned the hard way that it’s impossible to take candy from a candy store.
48-year-old Angel Vega, tried to leave a store in Hamden with all of his ill-gotten loot.
The store manager then confronted Vega and a physical struggle ensued.
It’s not enough for Mr Vega to try and steal candy and not pay for it, but what he did in the struggle to get free is truly a testament to this man’s character.
Before officers arrived on scene, Angel tried to bite and punch the manager before fleeing the scene.
As with happens with many criminals, he was later caught, and now is being charged with robbery and larceny.
