Five Guys Customer Steals 50 Pound Bag Of Potatoes

A Five Guys customer clearly was not satisfied with the number of bag fries he got with his order. A man in Waltham, Massachusetts walked out of a Five Guys with a 50-pound bag of potatoes. If you don’t know, the restaurants keep the bags around for decor and atmosphere. The incident happened on Tuesday afternoon. Local police said, “After eating at a local restaurant he decided to take a 50 lb bag of pre-cut french-fried potatoes on his way out the door. We are hoping that we can ‘mash’ all of the evidence together and come up with a suspect.” The suspect reached out to authorities on Tuesday night after surveillance footage of the heist showed up on social media. One person commented, “Those aren’t free like the peanuts?”
