Nanaimo RCMP continue to investigate an incident where coffee was thrown a McDonald’s employee last month.

Police said in the days following the release of dash cam footage,  which showed an adult female throwing a coffee at an employee in the drive thru window, then walking away, tips from the public pour in.

“This incident struck a nerve with many and the video of the incident was shared numerous times on social media,” said Const. Gary O’Brien.

He thanked the public for taking time to call and email police with information on a possible suspect. 

“The information was extremely helpful as it allowed investigators to narrow the suspect pool and aggressively pursue the incident,” O’Brien said.

Investigators expect to be forwarding their report for consideration to Nanaimo Crown Counsel in the coming weeks, according to O’Brien.
