Authorities say a man stole a New York City bakery truck and began delivering loaves of bread to random businesses.
    
Police say David Bastar hopped into Grimaldi's Home of Bread truck on Manhattan's Upper East Side early Monday while the real driver was making a delivery at a pizzeria.
    
Wearing only his underwear, Bastar then allegedly began dropping off baguettes, whole-wheat rolls and sourdough bread. He eventually distributed the entire $8,000 worth of baked goods - but not to the bakery's customers.
    
Joe Grimaldi owns the Queens bakery. He tells the Journal News that businesses found bread in front of their doors.
    
Bastar, of Nanuet, has been taken to a hospital for evaluation. He faces charges of criminal possession of stolen goods. It wasn't immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.
