Prank Caller Convinces Employees To Destroy Their Store
All they were doing was following directions.
[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]A prank caller fooled two Circle K employees in Globe, Ariz. into destroying the convenience store so severely that it temporarily shut down.
The loyal-to-a-fault workers believed they were abiding by the guidance of a security company — and they caused about $30,000 in damage before figuring out the trick, police said.
“They thought they were acting righteously in terms of following direction from security,” Sgt. A.J. Castaneda told the Daily News.
The call came in around 8 p.m. Wednesday. The prankster posed as Circle K’s corporate security, claiming that a silent fire alarm was going off and giving instructions to contain the crock crisis, KSAZ reported.
The caller told the employees to discharge fire extinguishers in the store, throw the extinguishers through the windows and destroy merchandise, computers, registers and security televisions, Castaneda said.
