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

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

The burglar stole a bottle of water before leaving with his food, police said.

Police released the restaurant’s surveillance video that documents the burglar’s cooking session.

“Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099,” police said. “DC Crime Solvers currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for a serious crime committed in the District of Columbia.”
