Lobster dinner follows Maine break-in

Sunday, June 21, 2009 | 6:13 p.m. CDT

PORTLAND, Maine — A man suspected of breaking into a Maine restaurant will have to get used to jailhouse food after workers at the eatery discovered lobsters and wine missing — and the suspect asleep on a bench.

Police said Paul Bruneau broke into the Portland Lobster Co. through a rear window and stuffed his pockets with cash before chowing down on the better part of 11 prepared lobsters worth about $300. He washed it all down with white wine.

The Portland Press Herald reported Bruneau also left a refrigerator open, causing about $1,000 worth of food to be thrown away.

Bruneau, who was already out on bail, was being held Friday at the Cumberland County Jail. He couldn't be reached for comment.
