An Arby executive under investigation for allegedly possessing footage of child sexual abuse reportedly urinated into the restaurant’s milkshake mix.
According to police, manager Stephen Sharp urinated into the mixture at least twice for so-called “sexual gratification.” An estimated 30 to 40 people may have consumed these milkshakes.
Police said there were two reported milkshake incidents in the Vancouver area of Washington, where he worked.
Mr. Sharp was arrested by Vancouver police and reportedly admitted to downloading and distributing footage of child sexual abuse. During this confession, the police claimed that he also admitted to “having a sexual interest in children”.
Police later issued a search warrant, claiming the man had dozens of photos and videos of child sexual abuse on his digital devices. Among the footage of child sexual abuse were videos of her allegedly urinating in milkshake mix at Arby’s.
Mr. Sharp told investigators he was “almost certain” he threw the shake mix bag after urinating inside, but it remains unclear. He told detectives that if he didn’t throw the bag away, it was almost certainly used to make shakes for the restaurant.
Investigators said they didn’t believe any of the other employees knew about their manager’s weird fetish.
Mr. Sharp was ultimately accused of possessing and distributing images of child sexual abuse four times.
Law enforcement is looking for someone to contact anyone who has an invoice and ordered a milkshake from 221 Northeast 104th Avenue Arby’s in Vancouver on October 30 or October 31.
“The Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit found no evidence that Arby’s or its dealer was aware of Stephen Sharp’s heinous acts,” said Sergeant of Vancouver police. Julie Ballou said columbus.
Arby’s representatives condemned Mr Sharp’s alleged actions.
“The alleged actions of the former franchisee are disgusting and unacceptable,” an Arby’s spokesperson said in a statement. FOX broadcasters. “We took immediate action with the franchise group that fired the former employee and cooperated fully with authorities in their investigation.”
Mr. Sharp currently has a reservation at Clark County Penitentiary. Bail was increased from $5,000 to $40,000 on Friday, court records show.
