Police Ask For 'Thoughts And Prayers' After Donuts Found Spilled On The Roadway

Brookhaven, GA โ€“ Police officers in Georgia took their mourning to social media after a truck carrying Krispy Kreme doughnuts accidentally spilled doughnuts on the road.

The Brookhaven Police Department jumped at the opportunity to have fun with it and made a post on Facebook that has gone viral.

Their post said:


โ€œJust moments ago, your #BrookhavenPolice officers answered the call each of us fears most ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Dozens of donuts fell from a Krispy Kreme delivery truck as it drove along Peachtree Road. ๐Ÿšš๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ. BPD rushed to the scene (๐Ÿšจ๐Ÿš“๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿš”๐Ÿšจ), but to no avail. We found total carnage; donuts scattered along the curb and into gutter- THE GUTTER, people!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿฅบ. The response time was stellar, but we couldnโ€™t beat the 5 second rule ๐Ÿ˜ข. We are deeply saddened to report that the donuts were a total loss ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ. 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 ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™€๏ธ. We ask that you keep our department in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn this terrible moment. #OnlyHalfKidding #TheyLookedDelicious #WeKnowItsAstereotype #NoShame #DonutsMakeEveryoneHappy #๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿฉโ€

Since it was published Nov. 26 at 8:15 a.m., the post was shared almost 10,000 times as of Thanksgiving Day.

Then the department followed with an update:

Brookhaven, GA Police Department **UPDATE!** Shout out to our friends at Gainesville Police Department for this amazing batch of sympathy donuts ๐Ÿฉ #YallTheRealMVPs #GoodLookingOut #Brotherhood

Gainesville is about 46 miles north of Brookhaven.

The police department released a statement to Fox News: โ€œIt appears that the donuts fell from the open door a Krispy Kreme truck. No one was injured and no crashes were reported. Our officers got the debris from the roadway and we thought it was a good chance to engage our community through a lighthearted post!โ€
