A smoke bomb canister bearing the words "United Skin Heads" and a swastika was tossed into a Studio City doughnut shop, causing minor damage, Los Angeles police said Saturday. Police said the shop's baker was the only person in the Winchell's Donut Shop in the 12000 block of Ventura Boulevard when the smoke bomb was thrown Friday night. The baker did not see the person who threw the device but suddenly realized that the store was filling with smoke, police said. Sgt. Chris Roberts said police have no suspects but an investigation is continuing.

A woman robbing a suburban doughnut shop pretended to be a waitress when a customer came to the drive-up window. Trouble was, she bungled the order--and the customer was a cop. Cheltenham Township Police Sgt. Michael Regan wanted a large coffee with cream and sugar. The woman at the suburban Dunkin' Donuts had an unfamiliar face, and she delivered a medium black with the cup only half full. He parked in a remote corner, watched and waited.

Burger King, Wal-Mart, Kinney Shoes, Dunkin' Donuts are hardly names that stir feelings of fear and loathing in the masses. But for Joseph and Lorrie Liani, the owners of a quaint doughnut shop down the road from Salem State College, the names are like a punch in the stomach. It's the feeling that strikes any mom-and-pop business when a national franchise--Liani calls them the "big boys"--rides into town.
