Acosta is charged with stealing a tractor trailer full of $75,000 worth of soup from a Central Florida truck stop, in the most un-Goodfellas heist ever.
The trailer packed full of soup was headed for Publix’s distribution center in Lakeland when Accosta, a 51-year-old from Orlando, pinched the ride at a truck stop and sped away.
Police were able to track the runaway soup truck via GPS, and nabbed Acosta on the Turnpike near Tamarac. Judge John “Jay” Hurley has seen some shit in his day, but never this, apparently.
“These are very unusual facts,” Broward County Judge John “Jay” Hurley said as he read from Acosta’s arrest report Monday morning. “The court has seen many things stolen … This is the first time the court’s ever seen $75,000 worth of soup stolen.”
Between the soup and the truck Acosta is looking at two counts of grand theft, totaling $350,000.
When asked why he’s in the joint by fellow inmates, Acosta might want to leave out the Chicken Noodle part.
