Easy: A Criminal Among the Village

There was a village controlled by the all powerful Chief. There was a theft in the village which had occured recently, however no one knew who it was. The police had gathered up 8 suspects and brought them to the Chief. The Chief gave each of them a stick and said, "These are magic sticks. Overnight one stick will grow two inches longer than the rest. The one with the longer stick is the culprit. I want all of you to show up here again tomorrow."
