The Clearwater Police Department posted a photo on Facebook of a group of officers standing in front of the van holding boxes of the tasty treats.
Clearwater police said the van was reported stolen Tuesday morning in Lake City, which is 193 miles north of Clearwater. It was spotted, loaded with doughnuts, at Crest Lake Park Tuesday afternoon.
