Foiled thief hurls hamburgers, hot dogs
NIAGARA FALLS—Quick action about 10:30 p. m. Friday by an employee of the Misty Dog Grill on Main Street foiled a thief who was trying to sneak off with hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken from the restaurant freezer, police said.
As the thief emerged from the walk-in freezer loaded with $100 in food, the employee slapped the bundle from his grasp. In retaliation, the would-be thief hurled some of the food items at the employee before fleeing on foot, police said.
Niagara Falls police are not naming any suspects at this time. However, they have released this picture of someone they are describing as a "person of interest."
