Gwinnett County police are trying to find a man they said made himself a meal and took a nap during a burglary at a Taco Bell.
The bizarre burglary happened Christmas morning at the fast food restaurant on Sugarloaf Parkway in unincorporated Lawrenceville, police spokeswoman Cpl. Michele Pihera said Wednesday.
When an employee arrived to open the restaurant the next day, the fryer was on and some food was left out on the counters, according to a Gwinnett incident report.
Surveillance footage from inside the restaurant captured the man going in through the drive-thru window about 12:15 a.m. He used the fryer to make himself a meal and ate it. He then took a nap on the restaurant floor “for a substantial amount of time,” according to the incident report.
The man left about three hours later after stealing a laptop and tablet.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact GCPD detectives at 770-513-5300.
