Skittles – Take The Rainbow

DALLAS Texas - A little candy can add up to a truck load of jail time for one individual.

A man caught removing tires from a truck has been charged with stealing a tractor-trailer containing $250,000 worth of Skittles, police said.

Seven pallets of the 28 in the truck are still missing, authorities said. Alan Chavez, 22, has been charged with first-degree felony theft. It was unclear Monday whether he had a lawyer.

 Alan Chavez said he had paid someone else $500 for the truck’s rims and tires, police said. The truck has an estimated value of $85,000, and the trailer’s value is $30,000.

For those of doing the math, that is nearly $9,000 for a pallet of Skittles
