Two Men Burglarize Anaheim Wienerschnitzel

The suspects allegedly got away with an ATM machine

Two men, craving more than a couple of hot dogs, burglarized a Wienerschnitzel on November 22 in Anaheim.

The suspects entered the fast food restaurant at about 2:15 a.m. through a drive-thru window, an initial investigation by Anaheim police discovered.

No arrests have been made in conjunction with the incident.

During the after-hours burglary, the men were able to remove an ATM machine from the premises using a device made to lift heavy loads, police confirmed.

No employees were inside the restaurant located in the 2800 block of West Palma Avenue at the time of the burglary, Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

In an attempt to disguise their identities, the suspects covered surrounding surveillance cameras with napkins. During the burglary, however, one napkin fell, exposing one of the burglars.

The two suspects were described by police as black males, medium build and 5’7” in height. The suspect captured by a surveillance camera was said to have black hair covered by a baseball hat and a mustache. His partner was also reportedly sporting all black, with the addition of gloves.
