On Monday morning, a man driving a silver Hyundai carrying a cargo of baseball bats and balls signed by San Francisco Giants legend Willie McCovey left the keys in the ignition while he ran in to a Walnut Creek McDonald's restaurant to satisfy his Egg McMuffin fix.
The man was only in the California Boulevard franchise location for three minutes (which: good turnaround, Walnut Creek Mickey D's) before he came back outside to see his Hyundai speeding off on to Cypress Street. Luckily, surveillance cameras caught a good look at the suspect (pictured) and police have a pretty solid description:
He is described as a white man in his late 20s or early 30s with a thin build, shaved head and a goatee and about 5 feet 10 inches tall. In the video he was wearing a tan button-down shirt with green pants and carrying a black backpack, police said.
We're not quite sure what the Hyundai owner's hurry was - the theft was reported at 7:10 a.m, so he had a solid three hours before the restaurant stopped serving breakfast. Still, anyone who spots the thief, the vehicle or a cache of Willie McCovey-signed bats and balls priced to move on eBay should kindly call the Walnut Creek PD at (925) 943-5844 and ask for Officer Jeha.
