Burglar Breaks Into Home, Enjoys A Steak, Splits

“Yeah, the ‘perp’ might have a greasy chin.” Giving new meaning to the phrase “eat and run,” a burglar broke into a home in Peoria, IL and the only apparent results were a purloined steak and a messy kitchen.

“Yeah, the ‘perp’ might have a greasy chin.” Giving new meaning to the phrase “eat and run,” a burglar broke into a home in Peoria, IL and the only apparent results were a purloined steak and a messy kitchen.

Police report a man returned to his home to find someone had broken in via a window, but nothing was missing – except a $6 steak he’d left out to thaw. He also found dirty dishes in the sink, a dirty skillet on the stove, and used paper towels on the counter. Police believe the intruder cooked and ate the steak.
