When police in Manchester, New Hampshire, answered a call from a Wendy's manager
accusing Ronald MacDonald of stealing from his restaurant, they could have thought
it was a case of corporate espionage. But it wasn't.
The manager wasn't accusing Ronald McDonald, the clown, of taking $133.
The manager said 22-year-old Wendy's employee Ronald MacDonald and a
co-worker stole the money from an office safe, the Union Leader reports.
The manager told police that MacDonald said that he used his driver's license
to pick the lock of the office and gain access to the safe. The manager said
he confronted MacDonald and asked him to return the money several times before
MacDonald did so.
Prosecutors charged MacDonald with a felony charge of burglary and his co-worker,
Steven Lemay, with a felony charge of criminal liability to burglary, the newspaper
reports. Police accused Lemay of acting as a lookout. Both men face probable
cause hearings later this month.
