Prankster tells BK workers to smash windows

- Police in Minnesota said a prankster claiming to be a fire official told employees at a Burger King to smash their windows to avoid a gas leak on Friday night.

As reported by KMSP, Coon Rapids Police Sgt. Mike Blair said officers received a call about the restaurant's windows being smashed around 9:30 p.m. Friday.

When officers got there, employees told them they got a call from someone claiming to be from the fire department who said the business was filling up with gas.

The caller then convinced them to break the windows to release the pressure.

Police were trying to track down the apparent prankster.

Reports of pranks on Burger King employess are not new. A similar call was made to a Burger King in Oklahoma on Thursday night resulting in $10,000 worth of damage to the windows.

Back in February, employees at a Burger King in California smashed the windows and the manager slammed his car into the building.
