A McDispute at McDonald’s | BLOTTER

The following information was compiled from Renton Police Department incident reports.

A woman contacted the police on Sept. 24 to report a dispute she had with a McDonald’s employee.

According to the woman, she went through the McDonald’s drive-thru to place an order. She said she waited about 15 minutes and received an incorrect order. She then got into a verbal dispute with the manager, and said the manger threw change at her face.

An officer talked to the manager on Sept. 27, who said the woman placed a large order and he asked her to pull forward to wait for the food. When he brought the order out to her vehicle, he said she was angry it took so long and said he “probably got the order wrong.” She then pulled back around the drive-thru and said she was missing a sandwich and wanted a refund.

As the manager was processing the refund, he said the woman began swearing at him. He said the woman’s brother who was sitting in the passenger seat “was going to beat him up.” When the manager gave her $40 back, she said she wanted her 0.9 cents back as well.

The manager said she told him to toss the change, and said he lightly threw the change into her hand. The woman reportedly started smiling and began cursing him again, while her brother was laughing. The manager said he slammed the drive-thru window shut and retreated to the office because he was afraid they were going to come into the store and assault him.

Another employee at McDonald’s said she saw the woman cursing and “acting unreasonable,” and that she did not see the manager assaulting the woman.

STOLEN WASHER AND DRYER: A woman contacted the police on Sept. 22 to report someone had broken into her house, located on the 3000 block of Northeast 19th Street, and stole her washer and dryer.

She said her house was up for sale and no one was living in it. There were no signs of forced entry. The woman said she suspects the cleaning crew she hired left the door unlocked on accident.

GAS STATION THEFT: A man contacted police on Sept. 24 to report a theft that occurred at a gas station on Rainier Avenue South.

According to the police report, the man was standing by the truck, fueling the vehicle. When he got back into the truck, he saw his personal and work phones — estimated value around $150 per phone — were missing.

He said he didn’t see anyone take the phones, but observed a woman standing nearby.

There is no further information on this case.

BROKEN WINDOWS: A woman contacted the police on Sept. 24 to report malicious mischief that occurred at her apartment complex on the 1000 block of Sunset Boulevard Northeast.

She reported her car windows were broken. She said she saw the car was in its normal condition at 10 a.m.. When she went to her vehicle around 12:30 p.m., the driver-side window had been broken. The incident occurred last month as well, she added.

Nothing was reported being stolen from the vehicle. There was no surveillance cameras around the area either.

There is no further information on this case.
