On Sunday, the Metropolitan Police Department issued a press release asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who burglarized a Five Guys location on Irving Street NW in Columbia Heights last month.

According to the famed burger chain’s security footage, released by the police department, a man entered the restaurant, got a drink from the soda fountain and cooked himself a couple burgers while talking on his phone. He then stole bottled water and made his exit.

The video shows a man in a fedora with a spatula, rummaging through cabinets and wandering around the kitchen while preparing his meal on the grill.

According to the release, the perpetrator originally entered Five Guys by following a delivery person inside. The incident, which took place between 3 and 5 a.m. on March 18, has been classified as second-degree burglary.

Anyone with information that could lead to the apprehension of the burger burglar is being asked to call police at 202-727-9099 or to text the tip line at 50411.
