Ravenous robbers took advantage of a trucker's downtime and stole 17 cases of frozen meatballs from his trailer in Spring Garden overnight.
The delivery driver pulled into a lot on the 500 block of North Columbus Boulevard for some shuteye. When he awoke around 12:54 a.m., he found that someone had broken into the back of his truck and made away with the meaty merchandise.
A bystander interrupted two men as they were unloading the culinary cargo and saw the foodie felons flee in a brown late 90s model Ford Windstar van. They made away with approximately 510 pounds of beef.
