PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- Call it a "sweet" gesture. 

A burglar in Washington State brought along a box of doughnuts for deputies when he broke into a police substation. 

Police say the man busted into the King County Sheriff’s Office storefront by shattering the front window, and then made himself at home.

When a responding deputy arrived, police say he found the man sitting with his feet up on a chair, watching television at a table in the back room, where deputies complete paperwork. He had just finished smoking a cigar.

The man greeted the deputy with a smile and a box of doughnuts, meant as a "peace offering."

"People say cops love donuts but we don’t recommend this method of delivery," the King County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook.

When asked if he broke the window to the storefront, the suspect casually replied, "yep."

So why was he there? 

He went on to explain he'd rather go to jail for breaking into a storefront than "kill his roommate."

Well, he got his wish. He was booked on charges of trespassing and malicious mischief. 

But the sheriff's office said there was "no word on the fate of the donuts."
