NYPD: Delivery worker allegedly tampered with food order delivered to police precinct
Police say it appears a delivery worker tampered with a Chipotle food order that was supposed to be delivered to the 61st Precinct on Monday.
They say the delivery worker allegedly opened the food order and touched the food while placing a note with a “disgusting” message inside it before handing it over to the customer inside the precinct.
A video shows the man placing a vulgar note into the opened order - directly into the food with bare hands.
The note also seems to imply that the delivery worker did something more obscene to the food.
A photo of the note and a screenshot of the order were posted on Facebook. Police say they believe the order was placed at the Chipotle on Kings Highway and East 13th Street.
Police say they believe the person who did this was a DoorDash delivery worker and not a Chipotle employee.
The officer had apparently started to eat the food before he found that note, according to police.
News 12 reached out to DoorDash and a spokeswoman responded to News 12 in a statement saying, “This behavior is absolutely unacceptable and has no place in our community. We take the trust and respect of merchants, customers, and Dashers extremely seriously. We have deactivated the Dasher and are reaching out to the customer involved.”
News 12 also reached out to Chipotle for comment and has not heard back yet.
