    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - A Gwinnett County man faces more than a dozen charges after police said he stole a delivery truck loaded with donuts.

    Investigators said James Freddy Major stole a delivery truck loaded with Krispy Kreme donuts and led them on a chase.

    "Nobody would like the donut that much he would steal the whole truck,” said Quick Shop store owner Peter Thakkar.

    Thakkar said he wouldn’t have believed it if he didn’t have the video proof.

    On Thursday night, the Krispy Kreme delivery man arrived at the Dacula Road store. Surveillance video from the store shows him unloading the trays of fresh Krispy Kremes.

    "They didn't even stay probably two minutes in the store," Thakkar told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.

    But another camera shows another man approaching the truck who police identified as Major. Seconds later, he and the truck are gone.

    The store clerk immediately called police.

    Police said Major led them on a nearly 15-mile chase. He went from Dacula Road, down Highway 316, to Interstate 85.

    "Could you imagine going down the interstate and seeing the Krispy Kreme donut truck with the cops chasing behind it?; Flashing lights? What would you think,” said store worker Susan Patterson.

    He eventually came to a dead end in a residential neighborhood. Police said he tried to run but a police dog tracked him down.

    Major faces several traffic related charges, including driving under the influence and theft of a motor vehicle.
