Police catch man inside restaurant after midnight

A man decided to visit Menlo Park's Mongolian BBQ restaurant late at night. Unfortunately, he chose to patronize the establishment long after closing hours.

Menlo Park police responded to a burglar alarm around 12:35 a.m. on July 11 at the restaurant, located at 700 El Camino Real. They found 55-year-old Max Perez of San Jose. He had allegedly acquired about $300 of the restaurant's cash and "miscellaneous items," according to the report.

Information was not immediately available on how Mr. Perez got into the restaurant and why someone from San Jose would be in Menlo Park allegedly burglarizing a restaurant after midnight.

He was arrested on suspicion of burglary, being under the influence of a controlled substance, and possession of narcotic paraphernalia, according to Menlo Park police.
