Food delivery is big business in any city and our streets are often abuzz with delivery vehicles hurrying to and fro. Chinese food is always a popular choice and the drivers are often so busy that they park their vehicles in any spot they find, legal or not. Often with the engine running so they can make a quick drop off and exit.
Meanwhile, in West Hartford, Connecticut, police received a call from a Chinese food delivery driver reporting that his car had just been stolen at a Middle School after he had parked it with the motor running while on delivery. The driver also called his boss to inform him that the remaining deliveries would not be made. To his dismay, he learned that a delivery had already been made by the thief. What?
Not taking a rocket scientist to figure out how to find the thief, local police quickly followed their noses and caught up to the Chinese food bandit en route to the next scheduled delivery. This genius had the great idea to cash in and finish off the rest of the deliveries. Brilliant.
Keith Hinds was arrested and promptly charged with third-degree larceny, possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia (crack pipe) and failure to keep drugs in the original container.
Let this deep-fried caper serve as a reminder to never "just stick it out front and leave her running." Or, let this be a lesson to just don't smoke crack.
