BONITA SPRINGS, Fla. - Authorities have released the surveillance video from the naked hamburger burglars who robbed Doc's Beach House in Bonita Springs.
The "hamburglars," who broke into the beachside restaurant around 3 a.m. Sunday morning wearing just their briefs and later stripped naked, stole 60 hamburgers, three pounds of bacon, three red peppers and a paddleboard.
In addition to the restaurant security footage and 200 frame-by-frame photos, the bandits left another clue: a trail of red peppers on the beach. On Sunday morning, Doc's kitchen staff found the restaurant's red peppers about 100 yards away near a beach bathhouse.
The video shows the men sneaking around through the kitchen trying to cover themselves and their faces before grabbing several boxes of food. At one point, one of the men tries to cover the surveillance camera.
The men never tried to enter the main restaurant to steal money. The bandits stayed in the kitchen area, grabbing hamburgers, bacon and red peppers from three coolers.
Doc's General Manager Lou Bangert said the criminals were in and out of the kitchen in five minutes. They left a mess of food on the ground.
The three men have yet to be caught and anyone with information on the identities and whereabouts of the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
