Police: Man stole bread truck, made deliveries
A man stole a New York City bread truck and began delivering loaves of savory baked goods to random businesses, the bakery's owner said Thursday.1% of the breadmakers have 99% of the routes! OccupyNissen! Robin BakerHood to the rescue!
David Bastar hopped into the Grimaldi's Home of Bread truck on Manhattan's Upper East Side early Monday while the real driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria, according to police.
Reportedly wearing only his underwear, Bastar then allegedly began dropping off baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sourdough bread — but not to the bakery's customers, said Joe Grimaldi, the owner of the baker in the Ridgewood neighborhood of Queens.
Every once in a while a story comes along that's just so... odd... that it makes you pause. This dude - dressed only in his tidy whities, mind you - hops into a bread truck (Don't ever leave your vehicle unlocked, folks!) and takes off. As if this isn't bad enough, he starts distributing baked goods at random, like some misdirected Johnny Appleseed.
I would hope that for his sake and for the sake of the rest of the New York Baker's Associations that he gets professional help. Maybe he can wean his way off stealing bread trucks gradually, going to stealing ice cream trucks and then down to only moving hot dog carts a few feet.
You could say this guy's a few slices short of a loaf...
That is all.
