Cops: ‘Hamburglar’ breaks into Five Guys restaurant
Washington — Authorities say a man got hungry while he was burglarizing a District of Columbia hamburger restaurant and began cooking himself some food.
The Metropolitan Police Department said in a news release that security footage from March 18 shows the suspect putting food on the grill after breaking into a Five Guys restaurant.
The video appears to show the man cooking two cheeseburgers while talking on a cellphone, but a police spokesman tells The Washington Post he couldn’t confirm the nature of the food.
Officer Sean Hickman says the man sneaked inside the restaurant after a delivery person left, and eventually stole a bottle of water.
Authorities say the incident is being investigated as a burglary. A $1,000 reward has been offered for information leading to his arrest.
