As a lot of us know from personal experience, working at a fast-food restaurant can be dull.

Even so, there are certain ways we don't recommend passing the time.

Like, for instance, firing off a gun so close to a neighborhood that the bullets riddle multiple homes.

That's what apparently happened near a Wendy's restaurant in Castle Rock early yesterday morning — and the crime can't be excused away by youthful exuberance. While one of the employees busted — Mariah Santistevan — is just twenty, her fellow arrestees, Kevin Borer and Derek Petraglia, are both 33.

The story comes to us from 7News, which reports that the first call about gunfire came in at about 12:52 a.m. on March 4.

Officers responded but didn't find anything.

Another complaint was phoned in at 2:22 a.m., and this time, cops reportedly discovered Borer, Petraglia and Santistevan shooting a gun into a snowbank near the Wendy's at 875 Kinner Street.

Either their aim was particularly bad or their shots caromed off something, because the bullets didn't wind up wedged in ice.

Nearby resident Joann Styron's house was hit multiple times, with one bullet smashing through the wall of the bedroom where she used to sleep.

Borer and Santistevan were arrested on firearms charges.
For his part, Petraglia is facing more serious accusations: prohibited use of a weapon and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.

If they were that bored, they would have been better off hiding under the counter when customers came in or mixing up the orders on purpose.

Look below to see booking photos for the trio, followed by the 7News report.
