Thief Steals Chinese-Food Delivery Truck, Makes Deliveries, Keeps Money!
"After stealing the car of a Chinese-food deliveryman, in West Hartford, Connecticut, on Friday night, Keith Hinds decided that he could make a few extra bucks by making the remaining deliveries himself. And that ambitious decision would soon lead to his arrest.
When the Chinese-food delivery driver realized that his car had been stolen at Bristow Middle School, he had left it running,he called the police. He also told his boss to inform the restaurant`s customers that they won`t be getting their orders, because of the car theft. But it turned out that one of the orders had already been delivered, presumably by the car thief. And more followed."
Homeboy was charged with third-degree larceny, and possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana.
Hinds showed a lot of initiative and determination by trying to make a few extra bucks by making the deliveries himself. But I`m surprised the dude didn`t eat all the food himself, the rush of stealing the vehicle and the effect of the weed must have given him quite a case of the munchies.
Don`t blame this criminal act on weed; Hinds also had a crack pipe and an anti-psychotic drug in his possession. A true stoner, who doesn`t mess with other drugs, may have stolen a couple of fortune cookies from the delivery truck, but he wouldn`t have stolen the vehicle.
Hinds couldn`t post bail; he is in jail eating bologna sandwiches, not Chinese food.
