Cops: Burglar grilled burgers, drank beer

UPPER DARBY, Pa. ” A man broke into a bar, grilled some hamburgers and then had a few beers to go with them, police said.

Joseph Michael McDevit, 48, was arrested Tuesday trying to break back into Clarkie’s Goal Post while investigators were inside searching for fingerprints from the previous night’s break-in, Det. Daniel Oliveri said in an affidavit.

Police said McDevit, who is homeless, acknowledged entering the bar after hours, frying hamburgers, drinking beer and taking a nap. Police said they recovered a cell phone from him that belonged to the bar’s owner.

McDevit was arraigned on charges of burglary, criminal trespass, theft and receiving stolen property. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
