Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Anyway you slice, it, these were two dumb crooks.

Francis Gallagher and Taylor Powell thought they'd hit the jackpot when the two bayou boobs from Louisiana snagged the identity of a Tennessee man with whom they'd been playing online games.

And with the info from the stolen credit card, what did they decide to do? Pay some bills, go on a cruise, hit the local strip club and offer to buy the polesters some teeth? No. They decided to celebrate their good fortune was by purchasing some Domino's pizza.

From August 2009 through January 2010, these two pepperoni pilferers ordered an astonishing amount: over $10,000 in pizzas, chicken wings and soft drinks, ringing up an average of $1,666 per month.

And all this before Domino's improved its recipe, allegedly.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
