On Monday night, a burglar returned to the scene of the crime after he forgot his keys inside a doughnut company’s corporate office. He was so busy ransacking the offices that we must have set them down to go about his business and forgot them when he left.

Johnny Doughnuts’ office in the San Fransisco Bay area was burglarized by an unknown man, and police said he stole some petty cash and the keys to a bakery vehicle, which he didn’t end up taking.

According to AP News, “San Rafael police are seeking the public’s help to identify the burglar,” who used a tool 0f unknown origin “to ‘manipulate’ the office’s doorknob and get inside around 10 p.m.,” according to Lt. Dan Fink. The bakery reported the crime to police on Tuesday.

Surveillance video, shared on YouTube, shows the suspect moving between the office and a back storage area, where “he pried open a filing cabinet,” and took an undisclosed amount of cash that was in a bank bag.

The text on the video says “On Monday 7/25/22 at 8 PM, a subject forced entry into the corporate office of Johnny Doughnuts at 68 Mitchell Blvd in San Rafael. Can you identify him?”

“Part of the investigating is finding out why this specific business was targeted,” Fink said.

The founder of the donut shop, Craig Blum, said Johnny Doughnuts plans to send over several dozen doughnuts to the San Rafael police officers. “It was an unfortunate incident, but we’re glad no doughnuts or team members were harmed,” Blum said.

“Sometimes even the thought of a doughnut makes you do crazy things.”
