HAMPTON (KDKA) — When the Eat ‘n Park on Route 8 in Hampton closed on Easter Sunday, the doors remained unlocked and people went inside the closed restaurant.

Police say the people left a foul message on the hostess table written in crayon. Eat ‘n Park says they also stole Smiley Cookies.

The restaurant was unlocked for 12 hours because Eat ‘n Park says the locking mechanism broke.

“We just wanted to make sure that food safety was not compromised,” said Dave Zazac from the Allegheny County Health Department. He says they’re not investigating but are talking with Eat ‘n Park to make sure appropriate steps were taken.

A spokesperson from Eat ‘n Park says security video shows the intruders never accessed the food.

“They did not have access to food, and our routine daily sanitation procedures ensure that the restaurant is always safe for our guests and team members,” said Kevin O’Connell, Eat ‘n Park spokesperson.
