Pennsylvania man calls 911 after Jell-O is stolen from his job's break room

Stealing is never okay—it's a lesson most of us learned as children.  That's why one Pennsylvania man who grew tired of thefts at his work place called the police.

The crime in question?  Someone stole his strawberry Jell-O from the communal work fridge. The Upper Macungie Police responded to Wakerfern, the place where the 39-year-old "victim" worked and completed a police report October 10, the Smoking Gun reports. (

As of today, police weren't able to track down the Jell-O, nor the thief in question. The incident "remains under investigation".

 Do you think the 911 caller crossed the line filing this complaint, or should the Jell-O thief be held accountable?
