WASHINGTON, D.C. -- We all have times where we have to eat on the job. Turns out, it's the same for criminals -- they get hungry right in the middle of breaking the law!

Like the Washington D.C. man accused of breaking into a Northwest Five Guys. Apparently, breaking and entering builds up an appetite.

Security video from inside the Irving Street Five Guys shows the man making himself a meal.

"A suspect followed a delivery man into the restaurant and waited until the delivery man left. He then rummaged through the establishment, cooked food, and stole bottled water before leaving the restaurant," a D.C. police spokesperson said.

The video shows him looking through the kitchen and cabinets before cooking himself two cheese burgers. All the while, he's talking on the phone and sipping a drink.

The crime happened between 3:10 a.m. and 5:05 a.m. Friday and police are hoping the public can help put a name to the hungry man's face.

"Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099," the police spokesperson said. "DC Crime Solvers currently offers a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest and indictment of the person or persons responsible for a serious crime committed in the District of Columbia."
