According to the Delaware County Sheriff's office, on Oct. 29 at about 7
p.m., an off-duty deputy encountered a suspicious person in the men's
restroom at Burger King, located at 8667 Columbus Pike, in Lewis Center.
After several minutes of observing unusual behavior and attempting to speak
to the man, the deputy determined that the man had inserted materials into
the toilet for the purpose of collecting urine from the patrons at the
Deputies said that it was suspected that Patton targeted the restaurant
