Forklift Used As Getaway Vehicle, Cops Say, Police in the town of Ross has arrested a man after he said he stole a sandwich from a restaurant and then tried to flee on a forklift parked nearby.

Police said Sean Faulkner ordered pub grub at Babcck Boulevard Sieb and ran out the door without having to pay on Sunday.
Karie Employee Donatelli, said Channel 4 Action News’ Ari Hait that Faulkner “was just weird. We were very wary of him.”

Witnesses told investigators then sought out Faulkner on a forklift parked in a lot nearby, police said.

“The elevator does not travel fast, so do not know who could make a quick exit,” said Brian Detecive Kohlhepp.

Faulkner, who was found by police sitting in the response truck, he said he saw the keys inside and drove to a parking lot next to Sieb, police said.

“Apparently, he was tired of walking, and he said he saw the truck with the keys, and it seemed a good idea at the time,” said Kohlhepp. “We had construction vehicle theft, but I know that someone took and used it as a getaway vehicle.”

Sieb also admitted to taking the sandwich without paying, police said.

Faulkner was charged with theft and receiving stolen property.

“I hope that something will not happen again, but it was fun,” said Donatelli.
