Suspect steals pizza delivery vehicle in St. Paul, remains at large
Two suspects wanted by police for committing a motor vehicle theft in St. Paul Wednesday night and for allegedly running up $5,000 worth of illegal purchases made on credit cards that were inside the stolen vehicle.
According to a police report, the theft occurred around 7:25 p.m. in the 900 block of Rice Street.
St. Paul police say the suspect stole the keys to the vehicle inside Mama's Pizza and took the vehicle.
The owner of Mama's Pizza, Tony Mudzinksi, told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS he and his crew were busy making homemade pizzas and pasta sauce when two men came inside the business and walked off with his car keys and then his car—along with his credit cards.
"I could not believe it and it was just sad when I realized what happened," said Mudzinski. "But, I will still be giving away the free pizzas and pasta sauce Thursday morning starting at 11-o'clock."
Mudzinski said the suspects returned his car to the restaurant parking lot Thursday night, but took off in another car.
The department is investigating the incident. The suspects in the case remain at large. No description was provided by police.
