Police had the last laugh after they were beaten by a local man in a doughnut-eating contest.

Bradley Hardison, 24, from Elizabeth City in North Carolina, ploughed through eight doughnuts in two minutes in the contest, which was held during an anti-crime event hosted by local police.

But Hardison’s happiness was short-lived. News of his win was published in the local paper and the county’s sheriff recognised Hardison as a suspect in two break-ins.

Camden County Sheriff Lieutenant Max Robeson approached Hardison, saying ‘Congratulations on your win last night’ before arresting him on criminal charges of breaking and entering and injury to real property.
