Driver of stolen bagel truck involved in 3-county chase describes ordeal to Channel 9

Orange County deputies pursued a bagel truck across three counties after a woman stole it from a gas station early Wednesday, authorities said.
The bagel truck was stolen while the Bagel King employee was getting gas at a Race Trac gas station on Edgewater Drive near Lee Road, investigators said.

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Raw: Interview with bagel driver

"(I) learned a lesson. I never leave the keys in the truck (and) the truck running," driver Carlos Rivera said.

Rivera said he was taking a break inside the store when he noticed someone getting into his truck.

"(She jumped) into the seat of the passenger side, into the driver side, so I'm running outside the store trying to stop her and screaming, 'Hey stop, you stole my truck,'" Rivera said.

Ashley Goldson, 27, drove away in the truck filled with $5,000 worth of bagels, croissants and other breakfast pastries, authorities said.
Goldson led deputies on a nearly 30-mile pursuit on I-4 from the Race Trac in Orange County through Seminole County and into Volusia County, deputies said. 

"They ask me, 'Why (do) you think they're going to steal a bagel truck?' I made a joke, 'That's how good our bagels are,'" Rivera said.

Deputies were able to stop the truck in Deltona near Doyle Road and Kirk Hill Road, authorities said.

Goldson was arrested and booked held in the Volusia County Jail. She's facing charges of grand theft and bringing contraband into the jail after officials said they found marijuana in her bra.

No one was injured.

Bagel King was returned its truck and Rivera was back out on his route within hours.
