Mmmmmm... Doughnuts...

Who doesn't love doughnuts?

Man accused of stealing truck full of Krispy Kremes

A man who told Ocala police officers he stole a doughnut truck because he was tired of walking and wanted to sleep was arrested Thursday and charged with grand theft auto and possession of marijuana of less than 20 grams.

Police said two vehicles bumped into each other Thursday and the drivers thought the mirrors might have been damaged, so they stopped in the 400 block of West Silver Springs Boulevard and called police.

At the scene, Randall Travis Roberts, 20, of Davenport, told officer Leonard Griggs he had stolen the 2011 GMC box truck owned by Gulf Florida Doughnut Distributing in Tampa from a Walmart parking lot in Haines City.

Griggs secured Roberts and called for backup. Officer Nigel Hardy arrived and confirmed that the truck had been reported stolen.

Roberts told the officers he had gotten tired of walking and that his feet hurt.

He said he saw the truck, with the keys inside, parked behind the Walmart and took it “because he needed somewhere to sleep.”

Inside the truck, Hardy found 338 boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts in the back, along with 10 grams of marijuana in a plastic bag on the floor near the driver's seat.

Roberts said the marijuana did not belong to him.

He was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail.

It is not known if he ate any of the doughnuts.

Somebody had a serious case of the Munchies.
