An eight-year-old German boy who stole his parents’ savings to go on a confectionary binge has been turned over to police in a sweet shop.
When he tried to buy 15 euros (£14) of treats in the western town of Viersen, he was asked if he had enough money.
The shop owner’s suspicions were aroused by the sweet-toothed boy’s 1,680-euro wad of bills and instead of a sugar rush, he got the bum’s rush.
The police were called and the boy’s parents came to collect him.
He had taken the cash – which was being saved for house repairs – from their drawer, police said.
