'M.A.S.H' hot dog eatery exec charged with theft

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) - The grandson of the founder of an Ohio hot
dog diner made famous on TV's "M.A.S.H." has been charged with
stealing from the family business.

A grand jury on Wednesday indicted executive vice president Tony
Packo III and another company official. They're accused of stealing
more than $100,000 from the business that's based in Toledo.

Multiple media outlets report the charges stem from a yearlong
family battle over control of Tony Packo's.

A private restaurant group backed by Tony Packo Jr. and his son
in October won the bidding for the restaurant chain, whose hot dog
sauce is sold nationwide.

The dispute grew after a relative of the Packos began
questioning them about company spending.

A message seeking comment was left at the home of Tony Packo III on Wednesday.
