Man takes pizza, goes to jail
A Goose Creek man went to jail instead of paying for a pizza, according to a Goose Creek police report.
A pizza delivery driver contacted officers just after 9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27, in reference to a man taking a pizza at his residence without paying. The driver said the man took the pizza, said he would return with money, but never did.
Police went to the home in question and found the man in a shed in the backyard eating the pizza. The man was taken into custody and arrested on a charge of defrauding a restaurant.
