A Pasadena, California man admitting to breaking into the Taco Bell on Fair Oaks Avenue because he was drunk and hungry.
22-year-old Jose Cruz admitted to police that he broke into the Pasadena Taco Bell to snack on taco shells after a night of partying. “He said he was drunk and hungry and broke into the business to eat taco shells,” Lt. Pete Hettema said. Lt. Jesse Carrillo said it appears 10 Doritos taco shells were removed from the counter.
According to reports, Police received a call of a possible burglary at the Taco Bell, 2050 Fair Oaks Ave, at 3:15 a.m. Saturday and a witness gave a description of the suspect. The Pasadena Star-News reports that about four hours later, a man approached a sergeant who was standing in front of the police station at 207 N. Garfield Ave. Hettema said the man wore clothing that matched the description given by the witness. The man, Cruz, then told the sergeant he broke into the restaurant.
Cruz was arrested and faces commercial burglary charges. He was being held on $20,000 bail and made his first court appearance on Tuesday, May 1.
