ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (WPMI) - According to the Tampa Bay Times, a St. Petersburg police officer was investigating a break-in at The Chattaway restaurant, reviewing surveillance video that shows a burglar eating a plate of chicken wings and drinking a beer inside the kitchen on November 6. The officer also discovered footage from another incident that happened the night before.
Video shows a different man riding his bike up to the restaurant. He strolled around the parking lot for 10 minutes before entering through the back gate. He would later open the door to a shed after wandering and remove a set of bongos.
The man then went into a restaurant bathroom with clothes on but left the bathroom naked. He sat at one of the restaurant's picnic tables and ate a bowl of instant Ramen noodles, which he brought with him. The video also shows him playing the bongos, still naked.
The burglar from the first video, who ate chicken wings and had a beer at the restaurant, stole an estimated $500 worth of stuff, including cash tips, a laptop, a tablet, and a grocery bag he filled with beer.
Police identified the homeless man who played the bongos in his birthday suit, but his name is not being released to the public. The restaurant is not pressing charges on the homeless man because he meant no harm and didn't actually steal anything from the restaurant.
As for the original burglar? Police are still looking for him.
