CLEARWATER, Fla. - Only in Florida.
This theft story has a wonderful ending -- the theft of a Krispy Kreme doughnut truck in Columbia County ended with free food being offered to homeless people from the police officers who found the truck.
The truck was making deliveries in Lake City when it was stolen, police said.
The Krispy Kreme delivery van was stolen Tuesday in Lake City and recovered nearly 200 miles away in Clearwater. There were still dozens of doughnuts aboard the stolen vehicle, so the store manager turned the treats over to the police officers.
The cops ate a few of them but mainly saved them for the homeless to eat later that day.
