    Undercover Cop Delivers Pizza, Arrests Man

    POSTED: 2:07 p.m. EST October 28, 2003
    UPDATED: 3:17 p.m. EST October 28, 2003

    SAN ANTONIO -- An undercover San Antonio police officer and management of a pizza company recently cooked up a special delivery for a suspected hungry thief.

    A man called Little Caesars Pizza and ordered three large pizzas with extra toppings.

    The man ended the call by saying "Please hurry up and deliver it, and there's a big, fat tip in it for you," John Steinberg, of Little Caesars Pizza, said.

    Employees started preparing the order when another phone call came in.

    It was the owner of the credit card that was used in the order. The problem was, the credit card owner didn't order the pizza.

    "When he went to report his credit card stolen, he called his credit card company, and they told him it was currently being used at a local pizza place," said Sgt. Martin Landgraf, of the San Antonio Police Department Forgery Unit.

    Police then arrived at the pizza restaurant and started putting the ingredients together for what was to be a special delivery.

    Little Caesars provided a company uniform for a police officer to use along with a delivery bag and empty pizza boxes.

    The disguised officer went to the suspected hungry thief's apartment and knocked on his front door.

    Seconds after Ernest Mascorro, 20, signed the receipt, he was arrested for alleged credit card abuse.

    Police said Mascorro allegedly stole the card from a neighbor's car.

    Steinberg said he was glad the arrest order was served well done, since businesses often have to eat the cost of credit card fraud.

    "It's about time we were able to catch somebody fraudulently using a credit card," Steinberg said.

                Try This......

                Maryland State Police have been using a borrowed Cable TV bucket truck as a hiding place for a Trooper with a Radar Gun. They park on the side of the road, put the bucket up to a pole, and the cop with the Speedgun crouches in wait......... (Story in The Baltimore Sun newspaper) Stay Safe....

                      That's funny Ja, but really not so far fetched. If I'm remembering correctly there was a PD in the states somewhere that used a scheme just like that to nab delinquent speeders; those who hadn't paid tickets. I just can't remember where it was, maybe someone elses memory is better than mine.

                        We've done similar things. It works every time.

                            No. That one is over the top. I have, however, hung a suspect or two over the edge of the roof....

                              Webster, MA for all their dysfunctionality did run a cool sting like that -- you reported to a local banquet facility on their lake to claim a prize.

                              They brought in a dispatcher from out near Boston so the locals wouldn't recognize the guy "registering" them was actually running a final computer check to make sure the warrant was still outstanding.

                              In the next door, put in cuffs, and down to a pontoon boat. Pontoon boat hauled the prisoners to the police station so other winners arriving wouldn't get suspicious seeing cruisers leaving...
