ABINGTON, Mass.—Police are searching for a prankster who prompted the illegal strip searches of employees at four Wendy's fast food restaurants south of Boston over the weekend.
NewsCenter 5's Gail Huff reported that police believe it was all part of a prank targeting the restaurant's managers, and they're looking for one suspect who called all the restaurants.
"The phone call was received and the person on the other end identified himself as a detective from Whitman and said that one of the employees was wanted and a suspect and asked him to strip search," said Deputy Chief Raymond Nelson.
The same scenario took place in Abington, Whitman, West Bridgewater and Wareham, Mass. Illegal strip searches were carried out by four managers who are now on paid suspension pending an investigation. Numerous employees took off their clothes and were body- searched by supervisors.
Terrible, terrible. ::snicker loudly::
