Man threatens to kill over Starburst candy

(KMOV) -- Here's the bizarre story of the day.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's department says a suspect tried to steal a pack of Starburst candy from a convenience store on Old Highway 21 in Imperial.  This happened Sunday evening.  When an employee confronted that suspect,  another man pulled a knife and threatened to kill the employee.  The suspects then left the store, dropping the candy in the process.  They got into a vehicle driven by a female and took off.

Police found the woman and arrested her.  The two male suspects have not been found.

The store owner says there is surveillance video of the incident.  If we can get it, we will post it on
