NJ Police Looking for Donut Thief Who Filmed Himself as He Was Stealing
Police in New Jersey are looking for a thief they've nicknamed the 'Donut Desperado'.
A man wearing a red hoodie was caught on surveillance camera June 1st around 8:30 p.m. stealing from a Dunkin' Donuts in South Brunswick, reports 6abc.com.
He's seen jumping onto the counter and dancing, before helping himself to a donut, a soda, and $2 and running out of the store, filming himself on his own cell phone the whole way.
A local restaurant manager told police he experienced a similar incident with the same suspect back in mid May.
In a statement released Wednesday, Dunkin' Donuts writes:
We are aware of the matter that took place at the Dunkin' restaurant located in Monmouth Junction, NJ. The franchisee who owns and operates this location informs us that the safety and well-being of his crew members and customers are top priorities and he is cooperating fully with the police investigating this incident. As this is an ongoing investigation, we defer any additional questions to the local authorities.
