We all know that HR is never dull. But sometimes it can get downright strange...
Taking a break
Police accuse a Pizza Hut manager in North Huntingdon Township, Penn., of trying
to make off with the dough - as in the money at the bank next door.
Peter Markovina, 19, left his job, held up the Parkvale Savings and Loan branch
office located just 100 yards from his restaurant, and returned to work, according
to township police Chief Charles Henaghan.
"He opened the store by himself in the morning, left the store before anyone
else got in, and then went back to work," Henaghan said.
Authorities said Markovina entered the bank minutes after it opened, showed
a teller a handgun, and demanded money. After getting cash from the teller,
Markovina left through a side door, dropped the ski mask he had been wearing,
and fled to his car, parked in a muddy area nearby, they said.
It was the car's location that eventually drew authorities' attention to Markovina,
police said. "We had some witnesses who noticed this car parked in a remote
area and told us about it. Without them giving us the description of that car...we
might not have been able to solve it like we did," Henaghan said.
Within minutes of the holdup, authorities noticed a vehicle matching the description
of the getaway car parked in a space directly in front of the Pizza Hut. It
had muddy rear tires.
