COSTA MESA , Calif., July 18 (UPI) -- A California man was arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary charges after he returned to a fast-food chicken restaurant for lunch only hours after he had allegedly burglarized it.

El Pollo Loco workers recognized Daniel Lee Warn from security camera footage of the burglary because he apparently didn't even change clothes prior to returning to the restaurant.

He was especially recognizable in the footage from the drive-thru because he was wearing a hat with a cartoonish neon-pink face on it.

While Warn waited in line at the eatery, police were called to come arrest him, the Daily Pilot reported.

Warn was sentenced to two years in prison last month, but was free as part of a post-release community supervision program.

Authorities also suspect Warn of burglarizing other restaurants in the area over a two-day period.
