Port Police Report: $100 Fake Order for Pizza Delivered to Car Shop

A roundup of recent activity from the police blotter also includes a local retail theft, a group of stray cats and playground smoking.

An unknown prankster cost the local Pizza Hut store nearly $100 after sending a fraudulent order to a Port business.

Port Washington police were contacted at 7:47 p.m. Thursday after an order sent to Synergy Tuning, 740 W. Oakland Ave., turned out not to be ordered by anyone at the business.

The order total $97.80 worth of food.

Those involved are working to find out which computer the order came from.

More from the reports:

  • Just looking for a 5-finger discount: Police responded to the Shoppes of Port Washington, which recently moved into the former Heart & Home building, 123 N. Franklin St., at 5:58 p.m. Aug. 27 after a call about a theft. A 14-year-old Port girl had placed a pendant and hair clip in her purse, but got caught doing so. She was cited for theft.
  • Somethings astray: A 47-year-old Port man called police after his dog started barking outside at 7:27 a.m. Aug. 27. Why? The dog was barking at a group of stray cats; it is unknown where the cats came from.
  • No smoking: Police responded to Possibility Playground at 8:01 p.m. Friday after a report of juveniles who were smoking — but didn't look old enough to do so. Upon arrival, they found an 18-year-old man and a 19-year-old man, both of Port. They were advised to pass the word along to friends that smoking wasn't allowed on the playground.

I have never ever heard of citation for a theft. That is just beyond me. I have no other comment than that,

I think you'll find that it is a quite common way to handle petty theft amongst most law enforcement agencies.

Pizza Hut was really at fault if they dont call back or call the business large order is being sent to. I worked at a Pizza place 15 years ago & we were smart enough to confirm large orders b4 making them. No common sense anymore no one has problem solveing skills! Smh
