Martin County “Hamburgler” has been apprehended

From the Martin County Sheriff:

“SNACK AND PACK BURGLAR BREAKING INTO LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND LEAVING HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS IN DAMAGE BEHIND, STARTS HIS WEEKEND AT THE DRIVE THROUGH OF THE MARTIN COUNTY JAIL

The burglar has been identified and arrested.

Martin County Sheriff’s Detectives and Road Patrol Deputies arrested 34-year old Patrick Benson this morning. Benson was charged with burglary, grand theft, and attempted burglary after he was caught on video inside two Jensen Beach restaurants after hours. Benson used bricks or large rocks to break the glass windows to gain access. Once in, he casually worked his way around the establishments and selected the items he was going to steal. In one case, he fired up the grill and cooked himself a hamburger before stealing the safe.

Following the release of information, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office received multiple tips from the community about who the suspected “hamburglar” might be. Benson does face additional charges. For now, he remains at the Martin County Jail.”
