Cops busted a minor auto burglary outfit in the Sacramento suburb of Rocklin, California last weekend after the four suspects posted an Instagram photo bragging about the $120 worth of Carl's Jr. they bought with a stolen credit card.
On Saturday night, 19-year-old Tavion Spignor, 27-year-old Leroy Jackson, 20-year-old Malek Morgan and one juvenile suspect, all from Sacramento, allegedly went around the parking lot of the nondescript Blue Oaks Town Center strip mall breaking car windows to steal GPS units and other easy targets. All that smashing and grabbing really worked up an appetite, because when one of the victims came out of a nearby movie theater to find her credit card missing, she found out it had been used to pay for $120 worth of food at a nearby Carl's Jr. restaurant.
The suspects apparently went through the drive-thru acting strangely and offering to pay for the car behind them. That sounded suspicious to 20-year-old shift leader Katelyn Hubick, who jotted down the license plate number while her twin sister and also co-shift leader (because who even saw that coming) Danielle cooked up the monster order. Per the Sacramento Bee, the suspects spared no expense on the menu, opting for the noted burger chain's high-end "$6 burgers":
...the order included five $6 burgers, five orange creme shakes, three barbeque chicken quesadillas, one bacon Swiss chicken sandwich, two double western sandwiches, two orders of fried zucchini, six orders of cross-cut fries, two teriyaki burgers, with added bacon, two barbeque chicken sandwiches, with added bacon, five southwest chicken tacos, with added sour cream. The total came out to $119.95.
A Carl's Jr trainee who could hardly believe the lavishness of the order instagrammed a photo of the receipt after the suspects left. Meanwhile, one of his astute instagram followers remembered spotting another photo of a bunch of dudes posing with their massive burger haul. It turned out the photo was posted by the 17-year-old suspect and cops were able to bust all four of them coming out of a Walgreens in another Rocklin strip mall the next night. A search of their car turned up some of the stolen items from the night before.
All four were arrested on suspicion of auto burglary, conspiracy, possession of stolen property and unauthorized use of personal ID. The youngest suspect was sent to juvenile hall while the other three went to the Placer County jail. Their bails are set at $10,000 - $20,000.
