‘Senseless loss’ | Georgia police department in mourning over doughnut tragedy

Despite valiant efforts, officers were unable to save spilled Krispy Kremes

A metro Atlanta police department is asking for the public’s support after its officers suffered the most unspeakable of tragedies: the loss of dozens of Krispy Kreme doughnuts that spilled onto one of the city’s most iconic thoroughfares.

On Tuesday morning, a Krispy Kreme delivery truck lost most of its cargo along Peachtree Road near Town Boulevard in Brookhaven.

Police rushed to the scene, but found only “total carnage,” the department said on its Facebook page, “doughnuts scattered along the curb and into gutter. The gutter!”

Police were saddened to report the doughnuts’ total loss.

“As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time, and the senseless loss of these delicious pastries has deeply affected all of our officers,” police said on social media.

“We ask that you keep our department in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn this terrible moment.”
