Burglar breaks into burger joint, fires up the grill

Washington D.C. police are looking for a man who broke into a Five Guys restaurant last month and appeared to cook himself a meal. 

Investigators say the break-in occurred early on the morning of March 18 at the popular burger joint’s location in Northwest Washington. They say the unidentified man snuck inside the closed restaurant after waiting for a delivery person to leave for the night. 

Once inside, the man was caught on camera fiddling with the restaurant’s soda machine before making his way over to the grill. 

After turning the apparatus on, the security video shows the man throwing some kind of food the grill, though authorities could not specify what the burgler was cooking. 

“He cooked food. I don’t know if he made a hamburger or not,” Metropolitan Police spokesman Sean Hickman told The Washington Post

Police say the man stole a bottle of water. Authorities are offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.
