FERGUS FALLS, Minn., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- A warrant may be issued for a prankster who phoned a Fergus Falls, Minn., pizzeria, ordering 20 pizzas to be sent to an ex-girlfriend's house, police said.

A police report has been filed, and a criminal charge is pending, for the unidentified man who allegedly made the call last weekend, to a Domino's Pizza location, KLVY-TV, Fargo, reported Friday.

"It's not a victimless crime," said Officer Nathan Lien of the Fergus Falls police. "There's a lot of people who work hard at their job to make that food."

Manager JoAnn Robinette said the prank cost the pizza shop nearly $300, and delayed deliveries to other customers that resulted in smaller tips to drivers.

The extra pizzas were given to police and fire departments, and to an ambulance service, KLVY-TV said.
