An ice cream truck vendor didn't have to look too hard Tuesday to find the person who had broken into his truck overnight -- his customers at Norwalk High School knew who did it and turned the burglar in.
The truck had been parked on William Street Monday evening. Tuesday morning the victim realized it had been broken into. Ice cream and candies had been stolen.
Students at the high school Tuesday evening told him that a classmate had been handing out ice cream treats and candies and pointed out who it was. Norwalk Police got involved but no arrest was made because the vender simply wanted restitution. The 18-year-old student apologized for the act, which police described as "moral turpitude;" and agreed to pay the vendor for the stolen merchandise since the ice cream had been consumed. Police helped negotiate the gentlemen's agreement and told the vendor to call them if the payment isn't made.

The boy was taken to the office and the photo was deleted. He was also charged with Breach of Peace.
