CATOOSA, Okla. – Authorities in Catoosa say a disgruntled former employee has been arrested for allegedly vandalizing a local restaurant.
Employees at Flo’s Burger Diner in Catoosa arrived to work on Thursday to a complete mess.
“We had just glass everywhere, we’re heartbroken over it,” Angelica Dudley, manager of Flo’s Burger Diner, told KJRH.
Officials say someone smashed their glass door, causing about $1,500 in damages.
“We’re a small business, family owned, it’s devastating,” Dudley said.
So far, employees have volunteered to donate their tips to help repair the door.
In a twist, police say a disgruntled former employee is the one who caused the damage.
Officials say Rodney Howard threw a rock at the door, smashing it. He was arrested on a complaint of malicious injury or destruction of property.
