Car thief carried on delivering fast food onboard
TO Hartford, Connecticut, where 45-year-old Keith Hinds is under arrest. Hinds has been charged with stealing a car delivering Chinese food. He then continued to deliver the food, pocketing the customers’ cash.
Problem for Hinds was that the car’s owner has called the restaurant to say that the food deliveries were off. The restaurant called the customers, who said the food was being delivered. The restaurant called the police, gave them the delivery schedule and the enterprising Hinds was pinched.
Police found Hinds in possession of a stolen Chinese food, crack pipe, a joint and an anti-psychotic drug in a bag.
It is, indeed a wonder, that he didn’t succumb to the munchies and eat the nosh.
But perhaps the oddest part of British readers is the list of offences levelled against Hinds, who was charged with “third-degree larceny, possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to keep drugs in the original container”.
Not keeping drugs in the right container is a crime?
With two deliveries remaining, police were able to track down the stolen car and Hinds, where he was making another delivery. He was also in possession of a crack pipe, a joint and an anti-psychotic drug in a bag. The stolen car was returned to the driver. Hinds was held on $5,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Hartford Superior Court later today.
