Florida man arrested after breaking into a restaurant and cooking himself a hamburger

A Florida man has been arrested after he broke into a restaurant and made himself a hamburger.

Patrick Benson, 34, was caught on video inside two Jensen Beach restaurants — one of which was a Wendy’s — after hours.

He used bricks and large rocks to break the glass windows and enter the properties in Martin County, FL.

Martin County Sheriff’s Office said: “Once in, he casually worked his way around the establishments and selected the items he was going to steal.


“In one case, he fired up the grill and cooked himself a hamburger before stealing the safe.”

He attempted to do the same at a petrol station, but was unable to gain entry.

He has been charged with burglary, grand theft and attempted burglary, alongside other additional charges.

He remains at the Martin County jail.
