Local authorities are trying to identify a man accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of ice cream from DairyLand Inc. since early April.

Security video released today by the Richmond County Sheriff's Office, shows a suspect breaking into a truck parked on the DairyLand property at 2542 Mike Padgett Highway and making off with large amounts of the frosty treat.

Richmond County Investigator Alton Creech said the suspect appears to have no preference for chocolate over vanilla and only targets the ice cream.

“It's ice cream every time,” Investigator Creech said.

Anyone with information on the suspect can call the sheriff's office at (706) 821-1080.

Nothing worse than a

Nothing worse than a low-down, yellow-bellied ice cream thief!! You just know he had to make a FAST getaway! If I were the police, I'd also be on the lookout for anybody stealing spoons, whipped cream, and those fancy little cherries! Oh, and don't forget about any known banana thieves! You just know that this thief has a "Rocky Road" ahead of him!

Watching that video, it was

Watching that video, it was obvious that, after getting all the ice cream, the thief made like a banana and SPLIT! There's a rumor going around that this guy doesn't steal the ice cream during the week, but only on Sundaes! Another rumor is that this might be the same guy involved with the Baskin Robbins, and now he's moved on to robbins the ice cream at the Dairyland! Okay....okay! I'm stopping with the awful puns.

At least he was thoughtful

At least he was thoughtful enough to come back and lock the door. Guess he didn't want the rest of the ice cream to get stolen,
