Online Detectives Help Slice by Saddleback Recover Stolen Mobile Pizza Oven

A $12,500 mobile pizza oven stolen from Slice by Saddleback’s West Lansing, Michigan, location at 644 Migaldi Lane was recovered with the help of online sleuths.

The business said the oven was stolen between 8 p.m. Thursday and 11 a.m. Friday, in a Facebook post, the restaurant initially offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the return of the oven.

The oven held extra significance to owners Matt Gillett and Travis Stoliker as it was used to feed the tornado victims that damaged much of the area last year.

The two men worked with nearby businesses, the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Hastings Police Department. They also reviewed security footage when a break in the theft came.

A Facebook tip led them to the oven at a location about an hour outside of Lansing. Gillett said Saturday that the oven was found near a home in Hastings.

Gillett told the State Journal that the people who stole the oven even sold it to someone unaware it was stolen. He also said he did not know if those responsible for stealing the oven had been arrested.

“We’ve had two incidents in the last couple of weeks with some sort of theft or burglary. It’s been kind of frustrating,” Gillett said. “Obviously, the crime, in general, has been frustrating, but also dealing with all of the things that come along with that.”

In the first incident, at about 3:28 a.m. on April 12, a male suspect was seen on security camera footage throwing a rock through a window of the restaurant’s front door, and stealing a cash register, according to the company’s Facebook page. While it wasn’t a massive loss in terms of money, Gillett said, it was more of a “pain in the butt,” with all the insurance paperwork, police report, and calls to be completed after.
