RALEIGH - It might not be the vehicle to steal if you want to avoid police scrutiny. , Staff Writer
A 15-foot Krispy Kreme truck, with boxes of hot, glazed doughnuts painted on its side panels, was taken last week from the downtown store.
"Seems like he would have got something a little less obvious," said Dwight Bunce, a 68-year-old route supervisor for the company who discovered the theft last Tuesday.
Raleigh police were instructed to be on the lookout for a wayward Chevrolet doughnut truck. Two days later, an officer spotted it on South Saunders Street.
Dwight Edward Carter of 1205 Sawyer Road was charged with one count of breaking and entering and larceny, and one count of possession of stolen property, police reported.
"He was so close to the vehicle, the patrol officer put two and two together and arrested him," police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.
Carter was in the Wake County jail Monday with bail set at $30,000, a spokeswoman said.
Bunce said there was a mess in the cab when police returned it -- chocolate cookies all over the place, a partially eaten cake and doughnuts, though no Krispy Kremes.
"It wasn't even our brand," Bunce said.
