    Seems that the news site had it encrypted or something, I had to repost it in pieces. It wouldn't post after a simple cut and paste. Anyway, here it is.


    Cops speed at 100 mph after doughnut van


    FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS


    TOLEDO, Iowa — A bevy of officers chased a doughnut delivery van at speeds up to 100 mph before arresting the driver at gunpoint, authorities said.

    But the cops weren’t simply hankering for doughnuts.

    The van, owned by Donut Delite of Moline, Ill., was stolen early Thursday while the driver was making deliveries at a hospital in nearby Rock Island. The driver had left the van running, and a man jumped in and headed for Iowa, just over the Mississippi River.

    A Benton County, Iowa, sheriff’s deputy spotted the van later in the morning, and eight other officers eventually joined the chase. Authorities finally cornered it in neighboring Tama County.


    Frank Alvarado, 46, of Moline, Ill., was charged with theft and other counts and was held on $15,000 bond.


    Security video showed Alvarado milling about before driving off in the van, but he was not listed as a patient, said officials at Trinity Medical Hospital-West in Rock Island. A jail official said he was assigned a public defender, whose name wasn’t immediately available.


    Tama County Sheriff Dennis Kucera said his officers had no idea what the unmarked van was carrying.


    They were rewarded for their efforts anyway — the doughnut shop gave them the purloined goodies.

    I just got this information in an email but from another news link. FoxNews.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,340314,00.html

    TOLEDO, Iowa — An Illinois man was arrested after police chased a stolen delivery van loaded with doughnuts across two Iowa counties at speeds of up to 100 mph.


    The van, owned by Donut Delite, of Moline, Ill., was stolen early Thursday while the driver was making deliveries at a hospital in nearby Rock Island.


    More than 100 miles later in Iowa, a Benton County sheriff's deputy spotted the van about 9:30 a.m. — and the chase began.


    Other officers joined in, and the chase stretched into Tama County. Authorities finally cornered the van in Toledo and arrested the driver, Frank Alvarado, 46, of Moline, Ill. He is charged with theft, eluding and numerous traffic violations.


    He had been a patient at Trinity Medical Hospital-West in Rock Island, authorities said.


    The bakery donated the doughnuts to the officers involved in the chase.


    "They probably deserved it," said Sharon Wainwright, manager of Delite Donuts
