Bradley Barefoot Steals Forklift Again Because He Doesn’t Feel Like Walking

Bradley Barefoot Forklift

Meet Bradley Barefoot of Port Orange, Florida. 43 years old. He was arrested Wednesday night for stealing a forklift… again.

Back in April of 2016, Daytona Beach police reported that Barefoot took a forklift from behind a Best Buy around 4 in the morning.

He was caught bare-footed again on Wednesday, June 28th on Nova Road in Port Orange. Police tell us that: “There was a male parked in a handicap spot with a piece of heavy equipment that had a mattress on it. The male was barefoot, talking to himself while swearing and throwing his hands up.”

Barefoot had moved some boxes around and then drove it around the Bob Evans restaurant on International Speedway Boulevard before getting busted.

When Daytona Beach police asked why he took the forklift, he said:

“…it was better than walking.”

They arrested him, and according to clickorlando.com he was charged with grand theft.


 

A separate forklift theft incident took place recently in the Florida Keys too:

Drunk man crashes stolen forklift in Florida Keys

MARATHON, Fla. — Florida Keys authorities say a drunken man from Rhode Island stole a forklift and crashed into a gate, telling deputies he lost his car keys and needed something to drive.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says in a news release that 44-year-old Edward Quinton of Greenwich, Rhode Island told deputies he was in the Keys helping friends move.

Quinton was quoted as saying that after he lost his keys Thursday night, he needed a vehicle and took the forklift from a Marathon marina because he knew how to drive one. Quinton also told deputies he thought he could fix the damaged gate.

Breath tests showed Quinton’s blood-alcohol level was twice Florida’s legal limit. He faces drunk-driving, criminal mischief, burglary and grand theft charges.

Jail records listed no attorney for Quinton.
