Cleveland Garbage Collectors Have Been Robbing a Local Store

A crew of city garbage collectors is garnering some rotten attention after repeatedly robbing a local convenience store owner of snacks and soda during their regular rounds to pick up trash.

Apparently, the crew operates by sending in one guy to grab the grub— without paying— while the others wait in the truck. When their man returns with the goods, the other two will load up the shop owner's trash. If the owner puts up a stink, the collectors leave his trash to rot for another week.

Recently, the whole escapade was caught on camera, and the owner has taken the matter to city officials. The city says disiplinary action has already been taken, but punishment's still forthcoming.

Here's the surveillance footage and full report from 19 Action News' Ed Gallek.
