On Sunday, June 5th, 2022, security cameras at the New Standard Provisioning Center in Detroit, Michigan captured something truly bizarre: a gingerbread man running out of the store. The only witnesses to the event were an elderly couple from the nearby city of Hamtramck.
The couple stated that the gingerbread man reminded them of their long-lost son who ran away from home in 1972. The last words their son said before he ran away were “run, run, run. You can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.” The similarity in appearance between the Gingerbread Man and the couple’s son was uncanny. Surveillance footage shows the Gingerbread Man entering the store at 9:11 am and heading straight for the baked goods aisle.
He then selected a gingerbread cookie and proceeded to the check-out, where he paid quickly with bitcoin and made his escape. Police are currently investigating the matter and are looking for any leads that may help them to find the notorious Gingerbread Man.
The footage of the gingerbread man has since gone viral on social media, with many people speculating about what could have possibly happened. Some believe that the gingerbread man is actually a real person who was wearing a costume, while others think that he may be a magical creature. Regardless of what the truth may be, one thing is for sure: the gingerbread man is one fast runner! As for the Gingerbread Man, he remains at large. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Hamtramck Police Department.
