An employee of a business in the 1000 block of West First Avenue reported Oct. 5 to Grandview Heights police that on several occasions someone had shut off the gas supply to a smoker in the back lot.
The gas supply has been shut off at least six times since Aug. 1 when the business has smoked meat in the lot, reports said.
The employee said shutting off the gas does not stop the smoker or reduce the amount of smoke, but cuts off the heat supply to the meat, which could cause the meat to spoil or sicken people who eat it.
