A pizza delivery driver was just trying to do a nice thing, but wound up having $140 stolen from his car in the process.

The theft happened in the late evening hours of Jan. 24 when, according to Farmington police detective sergeant Lee Hollatz, a couple at Carbone’s was too intoxicated to drive home. A bartender asked the pizza delivery man to give the couple a ride.

The delivery man agreed to take the intoxicated man and woman to their home. On the way there, one of the passengers took the $140 from the driver’s money envelope before exiting the vehicle. The driver did not notice the theft until after the couple was gone.

“It’s one of those sad things that happen,” Hollatz said. “The pizza delivery kid was just trying to be a Good Samaritan and these two took advantage of him.”

Hollatz said police think they know the identity of at least one of the two individuals, and police expect to make an arrest soon.
