You might call it a grizzly burglary in a Gatlinburg candy store.

Police came to the rescue. Employees made the discovery around 6:30 a.m. That gave the furry animal 30 minutes to satisfy its sweet tooth.

Workers in the candy kitchen describe that bear as a kid in the candy store. You can see where it had a fun time eating a caramel apple and pecan log.

Black bears are not uncommon inside the candy kitchen. However, the store owners aren't too keen on having a "real" mascot.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is investigating. If captured, the bear would either be relocated or euthanized depending on its threat to the public.
