MIDDLEBURG HEIGHTS, Ohio

Criminal damage: Bagley Road

An officer went to Wendy’s at 11:59 p.m. May 29 to talk with an employee about an incident. The employee said the eatery was closed for the night and that workers were in the back of the restaurant cleaning up. He heard someone knocking at the closed drive-thru window. He saw a man in a car tapping on the glass.

The employee told the man that the restaurant was closed for the night. The man at the closed window said he was a driver for a food delivery service and had an order to pick up. Again, he was told that the eatery was closed for the evening.

The motorist became agitated at the window. The employee walked to the back to continue cleaning. He heard a loud noise, then glass breaking. He discovered that the drive-thru window was broken and glass was on the floor. The motorist then drove away.

The eatery’s general manager, who was not at the scene, said via phone that the restaurant would pursue charges if a suspect is identified.

The delivery service gave police two accounts that had orders from Wendy’s around the time of the incident. Any other inquiries must go through the company’s law department.

Wendy’s management planned to view security tapes. The police department’s detective bureau is investigating the incident.
