The real "Hamburglar"
CAPE CORAL, FLORIDA- A McDonald's employee recognized a man from surveillance video in a recent break-in and called police when he showed up in the drive-thru.
Police dubbed the robber as the "Hamburglar". The burglary happened ten-days ago and the building security system was damaged, but nothing appeared to have been taken. When 43-year-old John Gampa came to the drive-thru as a customer, the employee recognized him from the video and alerted officers. They went to Gampa's house and he tried to get away but was shot with a stun-gun and subdued.
He's held on a $35,000 bond and police say he was on probation for robbery. He's now charged with burglary and resisting arrest.
