The owner of a Long Island, N.Y., Mexican restaurant has surveillance footage of the suspect in an early morning burglary Tuesday.
While Nelly Balacios and his staff were upset by the break-in, they admired the man’s culinary skills on display when he made himself a meal in near total darkness.
“He used the Saran Wrap the way I used Saran Wrap,” the owner said. “You know like a pro.”
A manager agreed:
“He was working the pot like a pro. He was sifting the food. Shaking it around. Making sure it was heated evenly, distributed evenly.”
The suspect reportedly used a hammer to gain access to the cash register drawer and steal $100. He did clean up after himself, though, and left a dollar in the restaurant’s tip jar.
