Gahanna: Neighboring business accused of tampering with coffee maker

Gahanna police recently responded to a business representative who alleged that someone from another business had tampered with a coffee brewer.

A lower level business in the 100 block of Granville Street reported problems with a business in the same building at 11:21 a.m. Jan. 21. A woman alleged that someone urinated in the Keurig machine.

A police officer was shown three coffee cups. One cup contained water; another cup contained water that had been run through the machine; and the third contained an unknown substance from the reservoir of the Keurig.

The business representative said the machine would be moved to a locked office, out of the common area in the basement. No security cameras are inside the building to monitor the hallways, according to reports.
