DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. — A DeKalb County McDonald's is working to re-open after someone tossed a smoke grenade through a drive-thru window.
Police told Channel 2 Action News a customer placed an order at the restaurant on North Druid Hills Monday evening.
They said after paying for the food, the customer threw the device inside and sped off in a dark SUV.
Officials described it as a grenade that produces smoke that is normally used during paintball games.
Maj. Brandon Gurley said it was "a commercial-type smoke grenade that can be purchased online or any fireworks, paintball, airsoft-type facility."
Police said the smoke bomb did not hurt anyone, but it caused some frightening moments.
