Once they got the pie to the surprised, hungry resident, the police wrote about it in a Facebook post saying, "A confused resident accepted the pizza, and was very glad that the police were there to deliver the pizza, rather than talk to them."
Regardless of what you think of the police, you gotta admit this was one of the coolest gestures officers have ever done (besides, you know, protecting people and helping lost tourists find landmarks). And if this should ever happen again, maybe they'll step their game up more and bring a sixer of beer.
