Brookhaven, GA, Police Department

Just moments ago, your BrookhavenPolice officers answered the call each of us fears most. Dozens of donuts fell from a Krispy Kreme delivery truck as it drove along Peachtree Road. BPD rushed to the scene, but to no avail. We found total carnage; donuts scattered along the curb and into gutter- THE GUTTER, people!!! The response time was stellar, but we couldn’t beat the 5 second rule. We are deeply saddened to report that the donuts were a 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. We ask that you keep our department in your thoughts and prayers as we mourn this terrible moment.
