The delivery man from Hartford, CT’s, Black Bamboo Chinese restaurant left his car idling when he made a delivery, at which point the car was stolen, and the perpetrator continued to make deliveries. The tip off was that later customers on the route reported that their food arrived on time.
The restaurant gave Hartford police the remaining delivery addresses, and officers were able to catch up with the perp as he was making his next dropoff.
