NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — If you’re going to steal a bread truck, you might as well go ahead and make the deliveries — right?

Well that’s exactly what happened early Monday morning when police said a Rockland County man hopped into a Grimaldi’s Home of Bread truck on Second Avenue near East 99th Street on the Upper East Side at around 3 a.m. and started dropping off loaves, rolls, and baguettes.

Wearing only his underwear, David Bastar, 30, of Nanuet is accused of stealing the truck that was full of $8,000 worth of baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and loaves of sourdough, 1010 WINS’ Derricke Dennis reported.

Bastar proceeded to make all of the truck’s scheduled deliveries.

Customers at Grimaldi’s in Queens said they couldn’t believe it.

“Very strange,” said Kew Gardens resident Karen said.

“He stole the truck and he made all the deliveries? That’s awesome,” said David.

“Yea I think it’s kinda weird that he would just go and deliver stuff in his underwear,” said Grimaldi’s cashier Isabella.

There’s been no official comment from Grimaldi’s but Isabella said it’s been the topic of conversation at the bakery in Ridgewood, Queens all day.

“The weirdest part is that he made all the deliveries,” she said.

The alleged bread bandit was finally caught after he was allegedly tailgating a limo driver and pulled over near LaGuardia Airport, Dennis reported.
