Two employees of a Circle K convenience store in Globe, Arizona decimated their own store after being fooled by a prank caller. My God, how did this not happen in Florida?
The prankster called in and posed as Circle K corporate security, they claimed a fire alarm was going off and he instructed the employees to do certain things to stop the alarm.
“The first thing they asked him to do was discharge a fire extinguishers inside the fire, which apparently did not raise any alarms when they did that. Even though there were customers inside the store,” said a spokesperson with the Globe Police Department.
The caller then went on to tell them to throw the extinguishers through the windows, which they did.
“They finally ordered them to break the computer which is kind of when the light bulb went off that this is a prank call… unfortunately it didn’t go off any sooner, and the store employees caused a significant amount of damage to the store,” he said.
All of this took place while customers were still inside the store. No wonder Circle K asked local news affiliate FOX 10 not to run the story on these morons.
