WATERLOO, Iowa --- Waterloo police are investigating a prank that cost a local pizzeria hundreds of dollars.
A man placed an order with the Papa John's Pizza for 55 pizzas, but when the deliver driver arrived at the address, the employee was told no one had ordered the food.
According to the police report, the order was phoned in at about 11:07 p.m. to the Papa John's location at 1608 University Ave. The caller said he was at the John Deere site at 2000 Westfield Ave., and asked for the food to be delivered to a certain lobby.
The bill was $590.50 to be paid at the time of delivery, and the caller left a cell phone number.
Employees called the number back to verify the order, and the person who answered confirmed it.
The pizzas were baked and sent out, but the guard at John Deere said no one there was expecting pizza. By this time, no one was answering the cell number that called in the order.
The security official said the company had three employees with the same name that the caller left. But none of them were on at work at the time, and none of them had the cell number.
Police later called the number, and phone went to voice mail, according to the incident report.
