Man Steals Bread Truck, Makes Random Deliveries: Cops

Authorities say a man wearing nothing but underwear stole a bakery truck in Manhattan and began delivering loaves of bread to random businesses.

Police say David Bastar hopped into Grimaldi's Home of Bread truck on the Upper East Side early Monday while the driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria.

Bastar then allegedly began dropping off baguettes, whole wheat rolls and sourdough bread. He eventually distributed the entire $5,000 worth of baked goods — but not to the bakery's customers.

Joe Grimaldi owns the Queens bakery. He tells the Journal News that businesses found bread in front of their doors.

Bastar, of Nanuet, has been taken to a hospital for evaluation. He faces charges of criminal possession of stolen goods. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
