Your typical pizza order might cost approximately $20.
But in Fergus Falls, Minnesota, an over the top delivery prank may wind up costing one man far more than he expected.
The prankster may be facing a criminal charge and a warrant might be issued for his arrest if he doesn’t pay up soon.
“Some people don’t understand how much effort I put into going out there and trying to make a living and make people happy,” said Gabrielle Fietzek, Domino’s Pizza delivery driver.
Fortunately the Domino’s Pizza in Fergus Falls has employees that care.
Unfortunately a prank has set this shop back nearly $300.
Twenty pizzas ordered to an ex-girlfriend’s house isn’t funny in the least according to local police.
“It’s not a victimless crime. There’s a lot of people who work hard at their job to make that food,” said Nathan Lien, Fergus Falls Police Dept.
“Down to the nitty gritty. You break it down, it actually affects us in a ton of different ways,” said JoAnn Robinette, Domino’s Pizza General Manager.
Beyond just the $300 the general manager says that fake order put them back about an hour, which means other pizza’s arrived later than usual and that typically translates to a smaller tip.
“She’s carrying four different bags. Running to her car with two and then another hustling to get the pizza’s there,” said Robinette.
“You know I go out on the road and put myself out there to deliver these pizzas and make a living. People joke around about this. It’s not fun. All I want out there is respect,” Fietzek said.
And if you still think no harm, no foul, well a police report has already been filed for the man who made the prank call.
“Technically what he did was theft,” said Robinette.
And the police agree.
