Pizza Parlor Sabotage
(with comments)

In Pennsylvania: Pizza shop owner is a rat who hid mice at competing shops.

white mouse In what was hardly the best-laid scheme of mice and men, an Upper Darby pizza shop owner tried to sabotage two of his competitors today by stashing mice in their pizza shops, according to police.

Here's how it happened:

Two Upper Darby cops were eating lunch in Verona Pizza on West Chester Pike around 2 p.m. when Nikolas Galiatsatos, 47, walked in to Verona's carrying a bag and asked to use the bathroom, said Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.

Once he left the shop, the owner of Verona's looked in the bathroom and told the officers that Galiastsatos, whom he did not know, had left footprints on his toilet, police said. When the owner checked in the ceiling above the toilet, he found a plastic bag with a brown paper bag inside, Chitwood said.

Believing the man had stashed drugs in his ceiling, the pizza shop owner turned the bag over to police, who discovered that instead of heroin in the bag, there were several little hairy ones - three white mice to be exact, police say.

Galiatsatos, the owner of Nina's Bella Pizzeria, should know better than to release white mice. He should use normal gray or brown mice.

    t(-_-t), I believe it was "he" that suspected the heron. "They", only opened the bag to their great surprise.

    The local news said that the perpetrator had been suffering from depression caused by the death of his wife and a failing business. He blamed his business problems on his competitors.

    Although I live less than three miles from them, I cannot inform the other J-Walk readers which of the three pizzerias mentioned in the article has the best pie because the absolute best pizza in the greater Philadelphia area (Morrone's on County Line Road in Ardmore) is located within walking distance of my house.

    I hear that Tacconelli's has the best pies in Philadelphia. You have to make reservations and call ahead to let them know how many pies to make.
