Local resident John Glass did not have a great weekend. On Sunday, the 29 year old decided to head to a Haight Street McDonald’s for, you know, the usual: some food and a stolen Ronald McDonald house charity canister. Glass stole the canister (filled with about a hundred bucks) and then returned to pick up the food he had ordered. You know, as you do. The police found him sleeping on the steps of St. Agnes three hours later.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this story is the fact we discovered while looking at the Hamburgler entry on Wikipedia. Did you know that the Hamburgler has different names across the world? For instance, he is called the Hamburglerkrau in Germany and Dozer in many other countries. True story. The Hamburgler: just like Santa Claus only shorter and more inclined toward kleptomania.
