WASHINGTON, D.C. — Police posted video of 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, PIX11 reported.

He looked through the kitchen and back cabinet before he decided he was craving some food. The man turned on the counter-top 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.
