A Hartford man was charged after police say he stole a car being used to deliver Chinese food, and then continued to deliver orders to pocket the profits.
Police received a call from a Chinese food delivery driver reporting that his car had just been stolen at Bristow Middle School on Highland Street after he had left it idling to run into the school, police said.
The driver also called his boss at the restaurant to tell him about the car theft, so that the restaurant could call remaining customers and tell them that their orders were stolen along with the car, police said. The people at the restaurant told the driver that one of the orders had been delivered after the theft, presumably by the car thief, police said.
Why didn’t I think of this?
