Beware in Seattle! A doughnut thief is lurking. A recent Fox Sports article tells the tale of the stolen maple bar doughnuts.
It seems that rookie wide receiver Golden Tate and a buddy decided they were hungry for fresh doughnuts at 3:00 a.m. in the morning – this is the time of day that most bakers begin to bake doughnuts for the upcoming day. Tate lives in a building that has a gourmet doughnut shop at the bottom of the building. The smell of freshly baked doughnuts must have been too much for Tate and his friend to resist.
According to the story, he and his friend went to the bakery, found an unlocked door and helped themselves to several maple bar doughnuts without paying. When the baker found out that the doughnuts were gone he called the police. The story doesn’t explain how the police and baker figured out that Tate was the thief. Maybe the police followed the crumbs up to Tate’s apartment.
Of course, Tate is very embarrassed about the whole situation and no charges will be pressed. He said that next time he has the urge for freshly baked doughnuts he’ll send a friend to buy some from the bakery. Thank goodness, the police caught the criminal doughnut thief. Seattle is safe once again from a stupid criminal story.
