Below are officer comments about a suspicious activity/littering complaint at the Woodbury Public Safety Department filed on Oct. 21.
The information comes from an initial complaint report and is apparently an “ongoing investigation.”
While performing directed patrol efforts in the public safety break room, I located a frying pan, lid and pancake turner soiled in the sink.
It appeared that an unknown public safety employee or volunteer had cooked a hamburger or similar substance and failed to wash their food preparation devices.
Investigation revealed that officer Kim Richardson had washed dishes in the sink at about 0945 to 1000 hours today, indicating that the timeframe of the violation was between 1000 and 1300 hours.
I washed the food preparation equipment and left the kitchen in a clean fashion at 1400 hours.
No officers had used the kitchen during those hours, so the investigation must expand outside the scope of the A/B shift from Team A.
Incident will be forwarded to MDH and OSHA for blatant failure to maintain a neat and tidy kitchen.
