Pizza delivery prank cost two teens $381

Here is the prank: E-mail a pizza order to a pizza shop and have it delivered to the target’s home. Funny?


Not for two Middletown teenagers. The prank cost them $381, according to Lower Swatara Twp. police.


The teens placed two fake pizza orders – one for $262 and another for $119 – with the Pizza Hut in the 2000 block of W. Harrisburg Pike on Tuesday, March 18, requesting the pizzas be delivered to a Middletown residence.


When the delivery driver discovered that no one at the residence had ordered the pizzas, the police were called to investigate.


Police discovered that two 16-year-old students at Middletown Area High School had placed the orders by computer at the school at 8:30 a.m. and provided bogus names and telephone numbers. 


The students confessed and paid Pizza Hut in full, ending the investigation, police said.
