Men hold up pizza makers, flee with wrong dough

2010-11-24 05:27

New York – Police in New York City say thieves held up the owners of a pizzeria and then fled with a bag full of dough – the kind that crusts are made of.

Police told the Daily News that Salvatore LaRosa was charged with robbery after surrendering to police.

According to court papers, LaRosa and an accomplice followed the owners of Brothers Pizzeria on Staten Island.

After donning masks, the papers say, they pointed guns and demanded the men turn over a bag they believed held the day’s proceeds.

But instead, the bag was full of pizza dough.

LaRosa was released on $1 million (about R7 million) bail yesterday. His attorney, James Froccaro, declined to comment.
