Florida man reportedly breaks into restaurant, makes himself burger, steals safe

MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. – The Martin County Sheriff’s Office said it identified a man who broke into a restaurant and made himself a meal.

According to a Facebook post from the sheriff’s office, Patrick Benson previously broke into two restaurants, made himself dinner and stole what he could not eat.

Benson did not appear in a rush, and “casually” made his way through the restaurants choosing what he would steal, according to the release.

The “modern day Hamburglar” broke into a Wendy’s, started the grill and left with a safe. According to the post, he also successfully burglarized a second restaurant and unsuccessfully attempted to steal from a gas station.

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.
