Repeat retaliation

10:38 a.m. — 1300 block of West Granada Boulevard, Ormond Beach

Vandalism. Police responded to a local restaurant after its manager noticed someone had slashed one of his tires. 

The manager told the reporting officer that he went to get his phone's charger from his car when he noticed his car's rear passenger tire was flat, according to a police report. Upon closer inspection, he found a 2-inch slash on the side of the tire. The restaurant manager suspected a former employee caused the damage, as he alleged that the former employee has been repeatedly harassing employees and causing other damage at the restaurant.

The manager told police that he is often harassed on social media by the former employee, who he said uses a fake profile with the name of the restaurant and a warning not to eat there. He wished to press charges.

Suspicious incident. A fast food restaurant employee was delivering an order to a car outside when she was handed a note by a woman with blonde hair. The woman instructed the employee not to open the note until she was gone.

The employee, according to a police report, went inside the fast food restaurant's kitchen and opened the note, at which point she saw the woman enter the bathroom. The note asked for her to call 911, listed an address in Deltona, and stated there were three hostages.

The employee's manager called 911. During this, the woman exited the restaurant and left on foot. 

Sheriff's deputies responded to the address in Deltona and discovered the home belonged to a fellow deputy who didn't know who the woman could be.
