A man was arrested on a charge of harassment after being accused of making numerous calls to pizza shops to place phony orders, according to police in Florida.
Sebastian police said that they have arrested 49-year-old Randy Riddle, after being accused of making phony calls to TJ’s Pizza, Danny’s Pizza, and several other pizza delivery places in the city, Indian River County, and Micco.
Riddle has been charged with four counts of harassing phone calls, two counts of first-degree petty theft and one count of second-degree petty theft.
Riddle was booked into jail, and his bail was set at $5,500. In addition to the cash bail, a judge prohibited Riddle from making any calls to pizza shops.
If Riddle does make a phone call to a pizza shop, his bail will be revoked and will remain in jail until the end of his trial.
According to the police investigation, over a period of three weeks, Riddle made pizza orders and refused to pay for them.
He also sent some orders to false addresses and vacant apartments. He then called the pizza shops and told them that their pizza was disgusting.
Riddler uses five different phone numbers to make the calls.
Sometimes he used a false name while other times, he refused to leave his name. The companies said they lost at least $667.
