    Undercover Cop Delivers Pizza, Arrests Man

    SAN ANTONIO -- An undercover San Antonio police officer and management of a pizza company recently cooked up a special delivery for a suspected hungry thief.

    A man called Little Caesars Pizza and ordered three large pizzas with extra toppings.

    The man ended the call by saying "Please hurry up and deliver it, and there's a big, fat tip in it for you," John Steinberg, of Little Caesars Pizza, said.

    Employees started preparing the order when another phone call came in.

    It was the owner of the credit card that was used in the order. The problem was, the credit card owner didn't order the pizza.

    "When he went to report his credit card stolen, he called his credit card company, and they told him it was currently being used at a local pizza place," said Sgt. Martin Landgraf, of the San Antonio Police Department Forgery Unit.

    Police then arrived at the pizza restaurant and started putting the ingredients together for what was to be a special delivery.

    Little Caesars provided a company uniform for a police officer to use along with a delivery bag and empty pizza boxes.

    The disguised officer went to the suspected hungry thief's apartment and knocked on his front door.

    Seconds after Ernest Mascorro, 20, signed the receipt, he was arrested for alleged credit card abuse.

    Police said Mascorro allegedly stole the card from a neighbor's car.

    Steinberg said he was glad the arrest order was served well done, since businesses often have to eat the cost of credit card fraud.

    "It's about time we were able to catch somebody fraudulently using a credit card," Steinberg said.

    If Elliott Smith had tried to fake it through the day with Johnnie Walker Black instead of Red, maybe he'd still be alive today.

    0wn3d!

    The moral: Never commit fraud. Not only does it get you banned from HoFo, you just might get punk'd by an undercover cop dressed as a pizza delivery man!

    "It's not delivery, it's a criminal charge!"
