WEST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Police say a U.S. man stole a car used to deliver Chinese food and continued dropping off food so he could keep the money.
Keith Hinds was charged on Friday with larceny, possession of drug paraphernalia and other drug charges.
Police in Connecticut received a call from a Chinese food delivery driver saying that his car had been stolen after he left it idling to run into a school.
The driver also called his boss so customers could be notified that their orders were stolen. Police say one order was delivered after the car was taken.
Hinds was held on $5,000 bond.
