Smokin' up the joint

Are you mad at your probation officer? If so, you could do better than what this guy did.

San Antonio police are looking for a man who threw two smoke flares at a receptionist Thursday morning inside a downtown building that houses several Bexar County offices.

Employees in the three-story Heritage Plaza building in the 400 block of South Main Street were evacuated for about an hour after the 9:30 a.m. incident, said Arson Detective Jose Salame of the San Antonio Fire Department.

A receptionist for Elite Consulting, a service provider for Bexar County's adult probation department on the building's second floor, told authorities she heard the man pull the ignition strings on the smoke flares, but didn't see his face, according to county spokeswoman Laura Jesse.


Authorities believe the man who threw the flares is a client of the service provider.

Salame said the suspect wrote “zero tolerance” on one of the flares.

No one was hurt in the attack, but apparently the place got quite smoky. And, of course, smoking in the workplace is really frowned upon these days.
