“Excuse me, sir, are you a pizza delivery person.” Officer Mulligan asked of the man standing near his car.
“Yeah.” The man said gruffly. “What’s it to you?”
Officer Mulligan was taken aback. He looked at his partner, unable to speak.
Officer Fitzroy cleared his throat, “We were just wondering if, perhaps you could inform us of the specific reasons for your being in this area at this present time.”
The pizza man cocked and eyebrow, “I’m delivering pizzas. What the heck does it look like I’m doing? Picking my nose?”
The two officers looked at each other in shock.
Saturday, October 13 − 9:07 p.m. A woman on the 1900 block of Garden Drive reported a pizza delivery person outside of her house. She had not ordered pizza and was concerned. Police found the pizza delivery person was legitimate, however he was not polite.
