Ruben Manzano, 19, was booked into Ventura County Jail on suspicion of felony burglary of a structure, and was being held Sunday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
Manzano was discovered in a residence in the 200 block of South Fourth Street by a police dog after a search of the area. He surrendered to officers and told them he had been drinking and became hungry, so he broke into the fast-food restaurant, according to a statement released by the Santa Paula Police Department.
In the restaurant, officers discovered Manzano’s shoes, shirt and food that he had attempted to cook on the grill. A security guard had spotted a shirtless man running north from the eatery.
Officers investigating the alarm call, which came in around 1:35 a.m., spotted a man, fitting the description given by the guard, running between houses in the 200 block of South Olive and the 200 block of South Fourth Street.
