Alleged 'Hamburglar' found at McDonald's

ARLINGTON, Wash., April 14 (UPI) -- A real-life alleged "Hamburglar" was awaiting charges in Washington state after being apprehended at a McDonald's restaurant, officials say.

Unlike the McDonald's children's advertising character, the alleged Hamburglar in Arlington, Wash., is real, The (Everett, Wash.) Herald reported Tuesday.

Local police say the man was first arrested last week on suspicion of burglary but escaped from the back seat of a police car when officers rolled down a window to allow him to throw up.

Two days later, police reportedly received a call from the manager of a McDonald's who said a customer matching the escaped suspect's description had been in the restaurant but had disappeared. An affidavit filed Monday indicated that police took a look around the McDonald's, noticed a loose ceiling tile, and found the suspect hiding in the ceiling.

The man was booked into the Snohomish County Jail in Everett and was awaiting formal charges of third-degree escape, residential burglary, theft, malicious mischief and burglary, the Herald said.
