Stakeout For VandalsMonday, June 8, 2009
Thomas Stamoulis, manager of Mystiko Greek Kitchen and Wine Bar in Ottawa decided to take matters into his own hands and try to catch vandals in the act. He waited by a second-floor window at the building across the street from his restaurant till the early morning hours yesterday.
At about 2:30 am, Thomas started to see some action. He says, “I noticed three people making gestures to one other person and then heard ‘ting, ting, ting,’ like someone was walking up the fire escape.”
Thomas and his friend end up catching the people trying to paint the restaurant before they had a chance to start painting. They put two of them under citizen’s arrest and waited for the police to get to the scene. Read the full story here.
