Good: Making money.
Bad: By steeling 5 cases of frozen pizza from a local warehouse and attempting to sell them.
Worse: To the town’s police department.
Troopers in Nome received reports of a burglary at the Gambell Native Store warehouse at around 10:00 a.m. Sunday in the village of Gambell.
Investigations revealed that 29-year-old John Koozaata and 21-year-old Lewis Oozeva of Gambell broke into to the warehouse early in the morning and stole five cases of frozen pizzas which amounted to 80 pizzas valued at about $1,100.
“Village police officers received their strongest investigative lead when Koozaata and Oozeva called the Gambell Police Department, attempting to sell the pizzas to the on-duty police officers,” troopers wrote.
Our wood-be entrepreneurs were both charged with second degree theft and second degree burglary, and all but 5 of the pizzas were recovered. I bet I know where the other five went, and I’m glad recovering them isn’t my job.
