A Utah man was arrested for allegedly releasing mice and hamsters in various hotel rooms and then complaining to management in order to get a free stay, a report said
Ryan State, 37, is accused of using the rodent ruse to scam at least three Utah hotels, including the Hyatt House in Salt Lake City, according to KUTV.
The location’s general manager, Sean Medina, told the network State was compensated for two nights after complaining about two mice in his room.
Medina reported the scam to police, who said two other hotels fell for State’s ploy, the report said.
State, who is accused of damaging several hotel rooms, would complain about feces in the room left by the rodents.
He’s charged with two counts of theft by deception and three counts of criminal mischief.
