Mice pizza in PA?

If you reside in Philly, be sure to check your pizza boxes this week.
Suburban Philadelphia police are calling food terrorism after discovering a local pizzeria owner tried to sabotage rival shops by dumping mice in them on Monday. The Associated Press reported that Darby police said a man walked into Verona Pizza on Monday afternoon and asked to use the bathroom. After he left, the owner said he found footprints on the toilet and noticed that the drop ceiling had been disturbed, and he found a bag tucked up above.
The owner turned the bag over to two police officers who happened to be eating lunch there, and they found three white mice inside. Police say the man then walked across the street to Uncle Nick's Pizza and dumped another bag into a trash can inside the establishment, and police found five live mice and one dead one inside.
Nikolas Galiatsatos, 47, owner of Nina's Bella Pizzeria a few blocks away, faces charges of disorderly conduct, harassment and animal cruelty, police said. Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said investigators believe Galiatsatos was having mice problems himself that he blamed on his competitors.
"We believe that he's trying to put the competitive pizza places out of business," Chitwood said. He said the mice, apparently purchased that day at a nearby pet store, have been turned over to animal control officers.
