It was a PT Cruiser, not PC Cruiser. Here is the press release from the police:

Also the headline "Confessesd" is a typo.

Is the booking photo going to be posted on the Weekly website? How long did he work at the Pleasanton McDonalds?

Ahh..... The "Hamburglar" from the 70's returns

Guess stealing burgers didn't pay as much as taking the cash

I guess he thought he was in a dead-end job.

We should all be very proud of the Pleasanton PD,
that they got the info, and were able to ID the bad guy.
I believe it is typical for a few bag guys to do repeat crimes, so taking this guy off the street will make things safer for everyone else!
And it sends a good message!
Editor, can you please follow up and let us know what happens in this case?
And other cases- just look thru the Reports.
So often we never hear whether they get a light sentence or no time, or get locked up!

McDonaldland is safe again!

McMakes my day that this thief was nabbed.

Here's how I see it...

Ronald McDonald is the victim.

Mr. Becerra is the Hamburglar.
I recall Hamburglar always donned his jail black & white stripes under his cape. yes, yes, yes innocent until proven guilty.

Captain Crook is the counsel for the defense.

Mayor McCheese represents law enforcement. (he was mayor with a star on his chest).

Grimace for the prosecution. Just like this over bloated government.

And the Jury Pool...? All us French Fry Guys.

I wait dining on Quarter Pounder's for my summons, because I want a
nice respectful McDonaldland, where it's unthinkable to pull off armed robbery in our community.

And...another crime is that The Food Police locked up all these wonderful McDonaldland characters that PTown children of today don't get the luxury to grow up with.
That too, should be a First Degree Felony.

This is the 5'6'' guy, right?
He used his own car to rob the place he manages?

I don't agree with xyz that for an individual to work in the fast food industry is in any way a "dead end job".

People work to make money so that they can survive. There's nothing amusing about people accepting the responsibility to earn a living. In many instances, the work is an entry point. However, that's not always the case.

What I'm curious about is how does anybody come to believe that working is laughable?
