You may not THINK you’re the criminal type, but when presented with an unattended truck full of Ben & Jerry’s, the temptation might be too much. At least it was for two Swedish chaps. You could read what happened in English, but that’s no fun. Instead, here’s some fun Swenglish from Google Translate for you to decipher:

Early yesterday morning struck glass thieves to the wholesale dealer in Gävle.

The thieves picked at the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream for 9 000 — but the shock went wrong.

The shock DID go wrong. So very, very wrong. (Translation of translation: Thieves swiped 9,000 Swedish krona worth of ice cream, or roughly $1,380, but their plans went awry.)

All glass-filled bags were dumped on an 18-year-old man who was arrested by the security guard. Crony engines ran on.

Damn those crony engines. It’s almost poetic, isn’t it? (Glass apparently means “ice cream.”)

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

“As I understood it was all ice cream left. And much had melted so I had to throw,” says Mikael Hedstrom, spokesman for the Gävle police.

18-year-old has now been arrested on suspicion of theft glass. Police are looking for cronies.

LOOK OUT, CRONIES. (Most of the stolen ice cream was melted and had to be tossed.) The real crime here is that NO ONE got to enjoy any Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt.
