Cops: Pizzeria owner left mice at rival shops

UPPER DARBY, Pa. – A pizzeria owner with mice problems he blamed on competitors tried to sabotage two rival shops by dumping mice in them Monday, authorities in suburban Philadelphia said.

Upper Darby police said a man walked into Verona Pizza on Monday afternoon and asked to use the bathroom. After he left, the owner said he found footprints on the toilet and noticed that the drop ceiling had been disturbed, and he found a bag tucked up above.

The owner turned the bag over to two police officers who happened to be eating lunch there, and they found three white mice inside, police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.

Police say the man then walked across the street to Uncle Nick’s Pizza and dumped another bag into a trash can inside the establishment, and police found five live mice and one dead one inside.

I find it more surprising that this isn’t more common…it’s a very cheap way to help move business along, and is relatively easy to avoid getting caught…sounds like this guy was just sloppy about it.
