“What should have happened is that she should have had [the boy] bring it to the counter and/or to the attention of the restaurant employees or to the family that the phone belonged to. Shame on her and she needs to be held accountable,” Chief Kugler said in a statement.
The boy that picked up the phone was described as being Hispanic, approximately 11 to 13 years old, wearing a yellow and blue jacket and blue jeans. The woman who reportedly directed him to take the phone was described as being Hispanic, approximately 20 to 30 years old, wearing a black coat and dark jeans and was about 5 feet 2 inches tall.
