‘Donut Desperado’ live streams theft at Dunkin’


Surveillance video from a New Jersey Dunkin restaurant shows an apparent prank that doesn’t have police laughing.

A suspect in a red hoodie recorded himself hopping the counter and grabbing a donut all while dancing and making a production of the theft as an employee watched.

Police have dubbed the suspect the “Donut Desperado” and say they believe the theft was live-streamed.

New Jersey TV station WPVI says the same suspect live-streamed a theft at a Chinese restaurant last month while wearing the same hoodie.

The donut theft happened last Saturday, just six days ahead of National Donut Day on Friday.

Had the suspected waited less than a week, the donut would have been free with the purchase of a cup of coffee.
