A man who broke into a bank in California, USA, claimed all he wanted to do was use the microwave and heat up some snacks—and he was caught on CCTV doing just that.
The man, whose name was withheld, entered a Wells Fargo bank in San Diego during the wee hours of Wednesday, May 27, by breaking a window, as per ABC-affiliate KGTV on the same day.
As a burglar alarm was triggered, police officers about an hour later arrived at the scene and broke through the bank’s front door, finding the man inside.
Upon checking the CCTV footage, authorities found out that the man just used the bank’s microwave inside a break room to heat up Hot Pockets, an American staple snack.
As the man was being arrested, he was asked by a reporter if what he did was worth it, to which he replied: “Hell yeah it was worth it.”
The man said he was able to eat two hot pockets and revealed that he was homeless, as per ABC-owned KABC-TV yesterday, May 28. Ian Biong /ra
