ACT Policing has released CCTV images of the two offenders responsible for the burglary and theft which occurred at McDonald’s Westfield Woden on Sunday 6 May, in the hope someone can identify them.

Between 1.00am and 2.00am, two men entered the premises through the rear door and stole approximately 200 hamburger buns and 20 drinks.

The first male is described as being Caucasian in appearance, aged in his early 20’s, approximately 175cms (5’ 9”) tall, with a medium build, shoulder length straight dark coloured hair and a fair to olive complexion. He was wearing a white business shirt, a black thin tie and dark coloured dress trousers.

The second male is described as being in his early 20’s, of Caucasian appearance, approximately 170cms (5’ 7”) tall, with a medium build, fair complexion and short dark wavy hair. He was wearing a white business shirt with a black bow tie and dark coloured dress trousers.

Police are urging anyone who recognises these males in the CCTV images to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via www.act.crimestoppers.com.au.

Information can be provided anonymously.

I must admit my involvement in a similar caper back in my university days. It ended up being the biggest bun fight ever!

Just bizarre. But also as a result of that, likely to be solved fairly quickly.

How about the most obvious option? 1am on a Sunday morning – they’re more than likely Civic outcasts who saw a door they could open and decided to get some trophies from their night out. Some poor bloke probably woke up with 200 bread rolls dumped out the front of his house on Sunday morning

It’s not really an ‘obvious’ option.
-Westfield Woden is hardly close to civic and the buses don’t run that late. Sure they could have caught a cab or driven drunk, but we’re getting to the point where it’s no longer such a simple thing as noticing an unlocked door while walking around – why would they be there in the first place? Why would you go to Woden, from civic, at 1am or so when civic is still in full swing?
-They aren’t dressed for civic.
-They *are* dressed as though they might be catering/functions staff

An alternative to Johnboy’s theory would be that a couple of employees at one of the nearby clubs(Hellenic, Southern Cross, ect) had a few too many drinks after they finished their shift, then went skylarking.

I really hope McDonalds Weston can recover from this heist. It’d be sad to see them go out of business.

Macca’s Weston may well be devastated by the theft at Macca’s Woden, but I don’t think there’s much chance that it would put them THAT far off their game…

Leave the poor bastards alone. Eating that crap is its own punishment.

Nah these guys are stealing through and through, look how they’re sticking their heads around the corner to see if anyone’s coming. Possibly ex-employees?

So my hypothetical:

— Function manager gets caught short on bread rolls.

— Calls mate in lower middle management at the maccas and asks for a favour.

— Mate says yeah no worries.

— Function staff get sent over to pick up the bread rolls and have no idea they’re doing anything wrong.

— Mate at Maccas says “take some drinks for the crew while you’re at it”.

— Inventory loss crosses a redline in maccas inventory management (staff making sales but trousering the cash is constantly looked for in these systems)

— Middle manager claims ignorance of everything as it escalates and the police get involved.

— Poor patsies in the pictures now bricking it.

Total hypothetical mind you but I saw weirder when working in cinemas.

That’s similar to what I was thinking. The guys clearly look like they work for a catering company.

Yep, looking at the outfits, i’d be getting a list of the weddings, 21sts, 18ths, and other functions on that night…..

Was that The Big Breadowski or The Usual Saucepects? I’ve seen weirder too. They’re called the filums.

How does one steal 20 drinks from McDonalds? I thought the drinks are made from post-mix syrup – does this mean the offenders furiously filled up 20 cups?

Pretty funny crime though.

So are they (allegedly) stealing them wholesale or retail? What would a Maccas’ roll even be worth wholesale? Major crims these two…

Maccas’s. Must avoid these attempts at popular slang.

They stole 200 hamburger buns? Goddamn, they must’ve been waaaasted. I wonder if they even remember doing it.

my thoughts exactly – though with photos floating around they’ll probably be turning themselves in shortly.

They must have been catering for a party and ran out of rolls…. It was a black tie event.

Maybe Freemasons?

I have so much trouble keeping up with fashion but I believe this season it is a major faux pas to be photographed at a burglarly wearing a black bow tie after midnight.

Looks like Hamish and Andy
