Police Follow Trail Of Donuts To Stolen Truck

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Say what you want about cops and doughnuts, but this story has a different twist.

Police in Harrisburg followed a trail of doughnuts to find a stolen Krispy Kreme delivery truck.

Tim Trostle had stopped at a Swatara Township convenience store about 12:45 a.m. Thursday to make a delivery. He left the engine on his truck running and someone drove off with the truck.

Since Trostle had left the back doors open, though, police were able to follow a trail of doughnuts.

Police in nearby Susquehanna Township found the truck near a downtown bar.

No arrests have been made and the truck has been returned to the company.

Swatara Township Sgt. Robert Simmonds said he saw his officers eating Krispy Kremes afterward -- but he said they weren't the evidence from the truck.

If the evidence of the crime is lost by the police . . . the prosecution case will have a lot of holes in it . . .

Wait, how do we know they caught the real donut truck? Did they examine how many donuts actually came out and the trajectory of the fall? How do we know it wasn't a government conspiracy and that there wasn't a second truck and if so why the first truck wouldn't have fallen on it's side from the weight of the donuts rather than making it to it's destination in one piece? I think I am going to devote a few hundred hours of my life to this concern so that I can feel smarter than if I just made a quick decision that the donut truck in question was even a real donut truck and the supposed cops were not actors in disguise. I'll get back to you after I process my decision and compile a full report. ok, I am just kiding no harm meant.

It makes sense that the Krispy Kreme donut truck would be the one the police followed up on immediately.
