Former pizza shop employee charged with burglary

A former manager at an Oak Harbor pizza joint is accused of pushing her way into a back office of the business and taking paperwork, according to court records.

At the beginning of the year, an employee at Papa John’s Pizzeria reported to police that a former manager who had been fired, Tiffany Cleaver, 37, had showed up to pick up personal items.

The employee told her that she couldn’t go into the office, blocked her way and said he would get the items for her.

Cleaver, however, pushed him aside, went into the office and took a folder containing statements that other employees had written about her, according to the police report.

The employee tried to block her from leaving with the folder, but she again shoved him out of the way and left, the report states.

Later, Cleaver told police she had shown the statements to her attorney and that there were “really hurtful,” the officer wrote. The police found them in her car and arrested her.

Prosecutors charged Cleaver, an Anacortes resident, in Island County Superior Court July 6 with burglary in the second degree and assault in the fourth degree.
