Ventura police arrested 37-year-old Lance Conley last night for breaking into Pizza Chief, a local restaurant that had already shut its doors for the day. The homeless man found his way in through an unsecured window, not to rob the register, but to cook himself dinner. Employees discovered Conley and, finding no asset in his kitchen skills, detained him until police arrived and booked the hungry highwayman on suspicion of commercial burglary. [VCS]
