Burglar robs BBQ restaurant in apparent preparation for Super Bowl party

The Jacksonville, Fla., Sheriff’s Office is asking Twitter and Facebook followers for information on a burglar they believe may be planning a Super Bowl party. Last week, someone broke into a barbecue restaurant and made off with “$4,000 worth of chicken, ribs, fries, and wings.”

The Facebook post, which notes that the suspect also stole an empty cash register, has mostly produced racist comments and criticisms of Jerome BBQ (“Nasty food,” writes one dissatisfied customer, with another stating, “Jerome Brown is a crook, so a crook got crooked”), though with photos this clear, the fugitive’s days as a free man are numbered.

If he really is preparing for football festivities, well, let’s just say it: nobody’s gonna beat that spread.
