It’s come down to this: Cobble Hill’s Sugar Shop has hired a former linebacker to protect the inventory just weeks after 40 marauding teens took its taffy, lifted the Lifesavers, and needled its Nerds during a flash mob. A subsequent spree on Sprees prompted owners to consult with a security firm, whose operator tells the Daily News: “This is the first time I heard about security in a candy store,” adding, “it’s rough out there.” The News also talks to an 8-year-old (paying) customer: “I don’t like that,” she says. “I want the candy. Stop stealing all the candy.” [NYDN]
