THE DRIVER OF a bakery truck that sat in a Southwest Philly Wawa parking lot for nearly 40 minutes wasn't delivering bread - but police say he had dough in mind.
Police on Monday arrested Keith Jones, 55, of Kingsessing, on charges that he stole 513 gallons of diesel fuel worth about $2,000 from the Wawa at Bartram and Island avenues on Feb. 4.
Jones, operating a Stroehmann bread-delivery truck he'd purchased at an auction about two weeks earlier, siphoned the gas from a station ground pump into a large storage tank, police said.
"Around the same time, a real Stroehmann truck pulled up to do a delivery," Lt. John Walker, of the Southwest Detective Division, said. "We're not sure if he used [the bread truck] as a ruse or not."
