Alleged car thief made food deliveries

Man stole a car used to deliver Chinese food and continued dropping off orders so he could keep the customers' money

Associated Press

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Police in Connecticut say a man stole a car used to deliver Chinese food and continued dropping off orders so he could keep the customers' money.

Keith Hinds was charged on Friday with larceny, possession of less than half an ounce of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and other drug charges.

It was not known Monday morning if the 45-year-old Hinds is represented by a lawyer.

West Hartford police received a call from a Chinese food delivery driver reporting 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 with the car. Police say one of the orders was delivered after the car was taken.

Hinds was held on $5,000 bond.
