Donut Thieves Captured! Celebrate with 10 Delicious Recipes

June 9, 2011

While I hardly need a reason to celebrate to find at-home donut inspiration, today marks the anniversary of the capture of the Donut Thieves of Slidell, Louisiana. In the middle of the night on March 27th, 2002 a couple hijacked a Krispy Kreme Donut truck, resulting in a 15-mile police chase, leaving a trail of donuts in their wake! While Rose Houk was caught in the aftermath of the chase, her partner-in-crime, Clint Messina, evaded police capture until June 9th.
