Oswego Police Chief: Pizza Delivery a First for Department

An Oswego Police cruiser doubled as a pizza delivery vehicle Sunday night. 

According to Chief Jeff Burgner, at about 8:45 p.m. an officer stopped a vehicle near Chicago Avenue and Garfield Street for driving through a nearby parking lot to avoid a red light. 

Upon talking with the driver, the officer discovered he was making a delivery for an Oswego pizza restaurant. The officer also discovered the driver and his passenger were in possession of drug paraphernalia. 

After taking the pair into custody, the officer then delivered the pizza to a resident who lived just a few blocks away, Burgner said. 

“We try to do all we can to help our residents, but I think this is the first time we’ve delivered a pizza,” Burgner said with a chuckle.

Charged in the incident were Nicholas Parello, 19, of 305 Kensington, Oswego and Dakota Albright, 19, of Aurora. They were both released after posting personal recognizance bonds, according to police.
