[Chicago Pizza News] Man Busted for Stealing Thousands of Frozen Pizzas

Anthony Lee was hired by Schaumburg-based Nation Pizza to drive more than 13 tons of frozen pizza to Springville, Utah. The pizzas were Stouffer's Pizzas, which Nestle contracts Nation to make.

On his way to Utah, Lee had trouble with his truck and realized he was not going to make his delivery date. At least that's his story for now. Rather than let the pizzas go to waste (and rather than return them to Nation Pizza), Lee decided he would try to sell the 26,652 pounds of pizza.

He tried to sell them to Transportation Salvage of Rockford, Ill., but the good people there thought there was something odd about a truck driver trying to sell over $40,000 worth of frozen pizza and they contacted the police, who arrested Lee.
