The burglar entered the Broadway Avenue restaurant early Saturday morning by breaking an exhaust fan at the rear of the store and climbing in through the hole, said officials. Nobody saw him enter and nothing else was taken besides the food to make the chicken and rice dinner.
Not legal work, but pretty hard work nonetheless.
It really makes you wonder about the person involved. The town (as the article notes) has a shelter and a food pantry, but whether they’re effectively available to this burglar isn’t clear. If they’re willing to work that hard for one meal, would they be willing and able to work legally? Were they just drunk or high with the munchies?
For someone there’s a bad novella to be written starting from here.
