US police say a Connecticut man stole a car used to deliver Chinese food and continued dropping off orders so he could keep the customers' money.

Keith Hinds was charged last week  with larceny, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and other drug charges.

West Hartford police received a call from a Chinese food delivery driver reporting that his car had been stolen after he left it idling to run into a school.

The driver also called his boss so customers could be notified that their orders were stolen with the car. Police say one of the orders was delivered after the car was taken.
