Bloomington Blotter: mistaken McDonald's orders and burning logs

Pitching a tent

Police arrested two people at 3:30 p.m. Saturday after they allegedly tried to exit the Target on East Third Street with two backpacks full of merchandise.

When employees searched their bags, they found $60 worth of T-shirts, three phone chargers and a $100 camping tent.    

Not lovin’ it

An employee at the McDonald’s on South Walnut Street reported a female customer to police at 4:40 p.m. Thursday for allegedly throwing food at her.

The employee told police the customer hit her with the food because she was angry that her order was wrong.

The customer told police she did not hit the employee with the food and instead just tossed it over the counter and said she did not want it.

Fired up

A Bloomington woman called the police at 8:30 p.m. Thursday after finding a large dry log on fire in the backyard of her house on South Huntington Drive.

She said the fire spread to the surrounding tall grass before her neighbors helped her put it out.

She told police she had no idea why someone would light a log on fire in her backyard.
