NBC – After stealing the car of a Chinese-food deliveryman, in West Hartford, Connecticut, on Friday night, Keith Hinds decided that he could make a few extra bucks by making the remaining deliveries himself. And that ambitious decision would soon lead to his arrest. When the Chinese-food delivery driver realized that his car had been stolen at Bristow Middle School—he had left it running—he called the police. He also told his boss to inform the restaurant’s customers that they won’t be getting their orders, because of the car theft. But it turned out that one of the orders had already been delivered, presumably by the car thief. And more followed.Because the last two deliveries by the thief had been made in Hartford, local police there were notified by the West Hartford Police Department, and the thief, Keith Hinds, was subsequently arrested and charged with larceny.
You know what may be the most shocking part of this story? The fact that the Chinese food place actually called the customers to tell them the food wasn’t coming. I mean think about it. Has a fast food place ever called you to tell you food was late or the driver was lost? Never right? You always have to call and be like “Umm I ordered my food 2 hours ago” and then and only then will they be like “yeah we are running late or driver couldn’t find it, blah, blah, blah. Meanwhile this Hartford Chinese food place is letting everybody know they got carjacked. A+ customer service. As far as the bro making the deliveries I don’t see why everybody is so surprised by that. It makes perfect sense. Clearly he’s a bum who needs money. He would have been a fool not to fulfill the orders. Free money.
