A stolen 99-cent cookie led to a slow-speed chase, a wrecked car and an unlawful entry into a stranger's apartment Wednesday in Fredericksburg, police said.

City police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe said the incident began about 5 p.m. at the 7–Eleven in the Bragg Hill area. A clerk reported that a young man grabbed a cookie from near the cash register, walked outside and started eating it without paying for it and got into a car with two other young men.
