A woman in Australia has been charged with stealing a delivery van packed with 10,000 Krispy Kreme doughnuts.
“It’s a Crime You Just Can’t Sugarcoat”
According to police, the woman stole the van from a gas station on November 29, and was found abandoned in a parking lot a week later.
The worst part about it all is she didn’t even give away the donuts, as the van was found still filled with thousands of spoiled donuts, the Standard reports.
CCTV footage shows the woman lingering at the service station around 04:00 local time on November 29 before entering the unattended delivery van and driving away. It remains unclear whether she knew the doughnuts’ presence in the vehicle. The stolen haul included both Christmas-themed and classic doughnuts, according to reports.
After a two-week investigation, police found the abandoned delivery van in a car park. The woman was arrested this past Thursday and faces charges, including vehicle theft and driving while disqualified.
She is currently being charged “with take and drive conveyance without consent of owner, drive motor vehicle during disqualification period and travel or attempt travel without valid ticket” according to New South Wales police.
She was refused bail.
Currently, Krispy Kreme Australia charges $15 for a dozen Original Glazed donuts. Doing some quick back-of-the-napkin math means the woman stole more than $12,000 worth of donuts.
