A driver with KC Cold Storage pulled out from an underground warehouse around 8 a.m., KSHB reported. He briefly stopped to grab some items from his personal vehicle when the truck, loaded with cookie dough bound for Springfield, Missouri, was stolen.

The truck driver followed the truck in his personal vehicle and called police.

The pursuit crossed state lines several times. Authorities used stop sticks to flatten the truck tires, ending the chase, WDAF reported.

"It's not every day we pursue a box truck full of cookie dough in it. When he went by us, he would just wave at us," Kansas Highway Patrol Lt. CJ Beard told KCTV. "I would say Cookie Monster, but yeah, cookie burglar would work, too."

A man who has not been identified was taken into custody.

Another truck from KC Cold Storage eventually made the cookie dough delivery.
