A pilfered sandwich and a stolen forklift truck have landed a Pennsylvania man in quite a pickle.
Ross Township police say 38-year-old Sean Faulkner ordered the Reuben sandwich - made of layered meat, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut - from a Pittsburgh bar, then ran out without paying and climbed on a forklift truck to make his getaway.
Faulkner allegedly stole the truck from a construction site on Sunday then drove it two miles to Sieb's Pub. He was reportedly still in the car park when officers arrived, with police saying he could not get the forklift truck into reverse.
Faulkner is now being held at Allegheny County Jail on charges of theft and receiving stolen property.
