Man steals bread truck, makes deliveries in underwear

Authorities say a man stole a New York City bakery truck and began delivering loaves of bread to random businesses.

Police say David Bastar hopped into the Grimaldi's Home of Bread truck on Manhattan's Upper East Side early Monday while the real driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria.

Wearing only his underwear, Bastar then allegedly began dropping off baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sourdough bread - but not to the bakery's customers.

Joe Grimaldi is the owner of the Queens bakery. He says the bandit "dropped a lot of bread" worth about $5,000.

He says the bakery later accommodated all its customers.

Bastar, of Nanuet, has been taken to a hospital for evaluation. He faces charges of criminal possession of stolen goods. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.

Well, the REAL driver could have been thoughtful enough to have left the “Drop Off Route” sheet. The bakery goods could have been delivered to the proper sites had he done so. (sarc)

It was the yeast he could do, when he wasn’t loafing. Just another example of rye humor...

Jean Valjean has gone nuts. Why mess with stealing a single loaf when you can get the whole truck.

“It wasn’t immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.”

Did they check his shorts thoroughly?

Nothing good ever happens in a story containing those words.
