They’re calling this guy the “Hamburglar” and that name couldn’t be more appropriate.

Patrick Benson, 34, was arrested Saturday and charged with burglary, grand theft and attempted burglary, according to a news release from the Martin County Sheriff’s Office. Security footage at the Wendy’s in Jensen Beach shows Benson robbing the place, but also cooking!

In the video you see Benson starting up the grill, making himself a burger and eating it. After making himself something to eat, he grabbed the safe and left.

“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.

Images from security footage brought in many tips on the identity of the man dubbed the “Hamburglar,” the office said. Benson is now in the Martin County Jail.
