In the northwest suburbs, a burglar was allegedly caught cooking at the scene of the crime.

Police say an alarm went off at Mr. Beef and Pizza in Mount Prospect early Saturday morning, and when police arrived, they found Hachem Gomez making a meal. He apparently got into the restaurant through a drive-thru window.

Police say they have surveillance video of Gomez damaging a cash register, pouring himself a soda and putting chicken tenders into a microwave.

He was arrested and charged with burglary.
