WESTLAKE, Ohio -- Workers at an Ohio Taco Bell say four people wanted more than nachos.

Restaurant employees in suburban Cleveland told police that the group tried to make off with a painting valued at $157 that was hanging on a wall in the fast-food joint.

The Plain Dealer newspaper reports the Taco Bell manager prevented the culprits from putting the art in their car last Friday. Police say the manager recognized the car's driver as an 18-year-old former employee at the restaurant. His three cohorts ranged in age from 17 to 21.

Police were waiting for a prosecutor to decide on charges for the four.
