PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Detectives are requesting the public’s assistance to identify a man who burglarized the Burger King restaurant on King’s Highway overnight.

Just after midnight Wednesday night, an unknown man was knocking on the drive-through window at the Burger King, located at 910 Kings Highway in Port Charlotte, which had closed for the night.

When employees checked the drive-through area of the business a short time later, they found that property that had been left in the drive-through cashier area was missing.  They reviewed the business’s surveillance video and saw that the man who had been knocking on the window had been able to maneuver the window open.  He was seen reaching through the window to take the property.  The video showed him leaving the area on foot.

The man is described as possibly being Hispanic, wearing blue shorts, a white T-shirt and tan quarter-top work boots.

Anyone with information concerning the identity of the man or information in this case is asked to please call the Sheriff’s Office at (41) 639-2101, or Crime Stoppers at 800-780-TIPS (8477).
