The owner of a recently opened Philadelphia pizzeria was arrested on Monday after he was busted releasing mice in two competing restaurants.
The man was first noticed walking into one pizzeria in Upper Darby, PA, where he went straight to the bathroom carrying a bag. Sensing something suspicious, that restaurant’s owner looked in the bathroom after the man had left and noticed footprints on the toilet.
He looked in the drop ceiling and found a plastic bag wrapped around a brown paper bag. Thinking it might contain drugs, he showed it to two police officers eating at the restaurant. They opened it up and found three white mice inside.
He was then spotted entering a second restaurant, where he left mice in the garbage can. After being identified, the suspect was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, harassment and animal cruelty.
