Stolen bagel truck leads deputies on 3-county chase
Orange County deputies were led on a three-county chase early Wednesday morning after a bagel truck was stolen.
- Bagel truck stolen from gas station in Orange County
- Deputies pursued truck across 3 counties
- Stolen truck was stopped in Deltona
The Bagel King truck was stolen at about 2:18 a.m., just after the driver had pulled into a RaceTrac gas station on Edgewater Drive to fill up before making a delivery, deputies said.
Orange County deputies were called to the scene and given a description of the vehicle. A deputy spotted the truck traveling down Lee Road, entering the Interstate 4 eastbound ramp. Deputies followed the truck for 27 miles through Orange, Seminole and Volusia counties.
Orange County deputies, with assistance from Volusia deputies, were able to pull over the driver in Volusia County along Doyle Road in Deltona.
According to investigators, the driver was 27-year-old Ashley Goldson, who they say found the truck at the pump with the keys in the ignition and took off. There were no injuries or damage to any vehicle, according to deputies.
A Bagel King worker said the driver of the truck is home safe — after finishing his bagel delivery for the day, only being slightly behind.
Goldson was taken to Volusia County Jail and faces charges of grand theft and introduction of contraband into a detention facility.
