Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Medieval Sword Fight Turns into Drug Deal Gone Bad
There's been many a bizarre crime at Taco Bells over the course of this column's history, but this one may be a first: victims of a robbery claim they had gone to a Taco Bell parking lot to practice their medieval swordplay. Then, it turns out these errant knights were actually there to sell pot to teens--and said teens robbed them. Results? Three charges against the robbery victims--HA!
A Bay Village man who told police that he and a friend had been robbed -- but failed to tell reveal that the robbery took place during a drug deal -- appeared in Rocky River Municipal Court on Tuesday. Police said Sebastian Wozniak and another man were robbed when they tried to sell marijuana to a group of teenagers. When police questioned him and the other man about the robbery, they neglected to say that the theft took place during an attempted drug deal, police said.
Wozniak was charged with trafficking marijuana, obstructing justice and possessing criminal tools. Those charges were bound over to a Cuyahoga County grand jury, but were eventually returned to Rocky River Municipal Court and reduced to misdemeanors. He pleaded guilty to the reduced charges and on Tuesday the case was set for sentencing.
