Jensen Beach, FL-The ‘modern day Hamburglar’ was caught on camera making himself a burger before robbing a Florida Wendy’s.
Patrick Benson, 34, was arrested Saturday and charged with burglary, grand theft, and attempted burglary. Security footage at the Jensen beach restaurant appears to catch Benson in the act and also reveals a strange part of his process.
After breaking the windows with a brick or large rock, Benson started up the grill, made himself a burger and ate it. After he ate, he grabbed the safe, and escaped.
"The suspect has been successful at forcing his way into two restaurants cooking himself some dinner -- then stealing what he can't consume," the sheriff's office said Friday.
Benson did not appear in a rush, and “casually” made his way through the restaurants choosing what he would steal.
