ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A bizarre burglary has police looking for a beef jerky bandit after surveillance video shows a wig-wearing man taking extreme measures to make sure nothing stood between him and his favorite late-night snack. Early Monday morning surveillance video at Mike’s Jerky on Menaul near Juan Tabo in northeast Albuquerque captured a convertible whipping through the parking lot. A man, wearing a wig, gets out and means business. The video shows the man grabs a brick from his backseat. He throws it at the glass door several times and then rams his foot through the bottom half. With just enough room to get in the man squeezes through the shards of glass, slides in the store and goes for the goods. The store’s owner Michael Grier said he was stunned when he saw the video. “We knew he put a lot of effort into it because he was wearing a wig, he had on glasses,” Grier said. Grier said more than 20 flavors of beef jerky line the walls of his store. He said its enough to satisfy many cravings but he never thought in his wildest dreams it would lead to someone cooking-up a plan like this.
I’m not really a beef jerky guy, don’t know if that makes me less of a man or something, whatever. But I do know that people swear by it and that couldn’t be more evident than the guy in the wig breaking into a store with a brick and stealing nothing but 15 trillion packs of beef jerky. That’s jerky dedication you don’t see every day.
