MOUNT PROSPECT — Officers responding to a burglar alarm at a suburban Chicago restaurant say the suspect not only was still inside when they arrived — he was cooking himself a meal.
Mount Prospect police say 19-year-old Hachem Gomez damaged the drive-through window at Mr. Beef and Pizza early Saturday and got inside.
Police say surveillance video shows Gomez damaging a cash register, pouring himself a soda and putting chicken tenders and French fries into a microwave.
The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/nYsbKE ) reports that officers nabbed Gomez as his food was cooking.
He’s being held on $5,000 bond on a felony burglary charge.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
