In New York City a man stole a bread truck that belonged to Grimaldi’s Home of Bread. Monday while the Grimaldi’s Home of Bread driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria, David Bastar hopped on and drove away. As if stealing the truck wasn’t enough, the man was also in his underwear.
I cannot help but laugh reading about this incident. I’m so thankful that this man did not act out in violence. Even though he was not violent, many people will still be scarred for life.
After the man stole the truck he then proceeded to make deliveries in his underwear. (I wonder if he made the customers sign for the bread?) He did not deliver to the bakery’s customers, but he was dropping off baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sourdough bread. “The bread was left somewhere. Where I don’t know,” he said. “He dropped a lot of bread.“ Grimaldi said about $ 5,000 in bread was taken.
David Bastar was later arrested near the LaGuardia Airport, where police say he wound up after tailgating a driver. Erica Dumas was concerned she was being followed and called the police. When they arrived they determined the truck had been stolen. There was no damage to the truck and it was returned to Grimaldi’s. No harm that is except to customers who were expecting bread and saw a mostly naked man instead…
