WASHINGTON, D.C. — Police are searching for a “hamburglar” who broke into a Five Guys restaurant in Washington, D.C. — and proceeded to make himself a late night meal.

The suspect followed a delivery man into the Five Guys on 1400 Irving Street NW on March 18th between 3:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., officials with the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said. He waited for the delivery man to leave the restaurant, and then began rummaging around.

He looked through the kitchen and back cabinet before he decided he was craving some food.

The man turned on the countertop griddle and made two cheeseburgers while he chatted on the phone and sipped on his fountain drink. He stole a bottle of water before leaving with his burgers, police said.

Police released the restaurant’s surveillance video that documents the burglar’s cooking session in an effort to identify and apprehend him.
