Pizza Shop Owner Tries To Sabotage Rival Pizzerias With Live Mice
Nickolas Galiatsatos, who owns a Philadelphia-area pizzeria, tried to get a leg up on his local competitors by planting mice in their restaurants, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Galiatsatos was discovered when Fanis Facas of nearby Verona’s Pizza spotted him entering into Verona’s restroom with a package — then exiting without it.
Suspicious, Facas checked out the bathroom and found the package in the drop ceiling above the stall. Thinking it could be drugs, he turned the contraband over to two police officers who happened to be enjoying a slice in his shop.
Not only did the cops discover there were actually live mice in the package, but when they walked outside to find Galiatastos they spotted him next to another pizzeria where he had just deposited another mice pack.
For his “food terrorism” Galiatastos was arrested and faces charges of disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, harassment and animal cruelty.
