David Greene mentioned this story on today's Morning Edition, but in case you missed it, here it is again. Too good to miss.

Paul Bruneau will have to get used to jailhouse food after workers at a Maine restaurant discovered lobsters and wine missing — and the suspect asleep on a bench.

Police said Bruneau broke into the Portland Lobster Co. through a rear window and stuffed his pockets with cash before chowing down on the better part of 11 prepared lobsters worth about $300 and washing it down with a white wine.

The crook also left the fridge standing open, ruining about $1,000 worth of perishables. But man, what a last meal!
