    Cops Issue APB For Doughnut Truck

    POSTED: 7:33 am EDT August 8, 2006
    UPDATED: 7:43 am EDT August 8, 2006

    RICHLAND, Wash. -- Hold the doughnut jokes. But police in the Tri-Cities area of Washington state were all over the case of the stolen doughnut truck Friday.

    Dispatchers issued an all-points bulletin shortly after the theft of a Viera's Bakery van was reported early Friday. A Benton County sheriff's deputy quickly spotted the truck and a chase ensued.

    Richland police got it to stop and arrested driver Steve Swoboda. Officers said the entire load was recovered intact, including glazed, sugar and cream doughnuts, as well as apple fritters and bear claws.

    Richland police Capt. Randy Barnes said he's never had a case like it in his 24 years in law enforcement.

          I am just picturing a huge coloumn of police cruisers following this one little delivery truck that would be maxing out at 80km/h.

                  WHEW!! That was too close.. I'm sure that APB got there blood boiling and adrenaline pumping.. we all know, nothing comes between a cop and his doughnuts. No need for any fancy lo-jack devices to track the truck.. just follow your nose (or gut!).

                    Would saying "Bad cop,no doughnut!" be out of line here,even though no cop had done wrong.
                    You know why smart cops go inside when they order fast food?To make sure no cook does anything hinky with their food.Like a lot of folks,I don't like hinky in my Happy Meal.

                      What we need is some jokes that start out:

                      There was this cop holding a donut...

                      and then we can talk all we want, Harv

                          However when returned to the donut shop the truck was empty. An officer reported that there was an investigation to make sure the donuts were delicious and the department agreed that yes they were in fact delicious. They investigated the entire truck and also investigated a coffee shop to make sure that nothing was missing from there either.

                              And............

                              I think I may have mentioned this before, but I was the Captain on a Rescue Company one night, and we ran a call for a "Odor of Smoke" in a donut shop. The B/C arrived just in front of us, and since it was O Dark Thirty, and NOBODY was on the radio, He advised that he was establishing "Donut Command". I followed up with "Squad 7 is on the scene, Side Alpha, Captain 7 will take Coffee sector".
