Man Accused of Causing $250,000 of Damage to Manchester Restaurant
Crazy night in Manchester, NH, on Tuesday.
Police responded to a burglary call at Foundry Restaurant and found quite a mess.
According to Manchesterinklink.com, 35-year-old Tennessee man Michael Grove allegedly caused over $250,000 of damage.
Police found broken windows, smashed bottles, alcohol all over the floor. While there, they heard more glass breaking and that's when they apprehended the suspect, according to Manchester Police Department's Facebook page.
Police were forced to use bean-bag shotguns, which are described as "less lethal rounds" after the suspect reportedly ignored repeated commands, according to Manchesterinklink.com.
Officer Christopher Abele, Thomas Donovan and Sergeant Jared Yaris were on scene, according to the Manchester PD. Officer Yaris injured his hand in the incident, trying to avoid a liquor bottle being thrown at him. He was treated and released from the hospital and the suspect was taken into custody
According to The Foundry, the restaurant is located in the historic Manchester Mill-Yard and is "where modern Manchester meets the Industrial Revolution."
The restaurant is owned by New Hampshire entrepreneur Dean Kamen.
According to Wikipedia, Kamen "is an American engineer, inventor, and businessman. He is known for his invention of the Segway and IBOT and has over 1000 patents."
The Foundry commented about reopening plans on their Facebook page:
The restaurant industry has already been hit hard enough during this time, so hopefully insurance will cover the damage, and glad the suspect is in custody.
