“Burglars Just Want Tacos”: Las Vegas Restaurant Turns Burglary Footage Into Viral Ad

A Las Vegas taco place that was burglarized a week ago transformed footage of the burglary into a commercial that has gone viral.

The security footage shows three men breaking into a closed Frijoles & Frescas Grilled Tacos establishment on Dec. 16 and sacking the restaurant.

Greg Carlson, the general manager of the family-owned and -operated restaurant, was alerted by an alarm system when the burglary occurred.

When he got to the scene, he saw that the glass door was smashed and two cash boxes were stolen. Fortunately, they were empty.

Carlson published a YouTube video the day after the robbery in hopes of getting the word out.

In the video, he overlaid text throughout the surveillance footage describing how desperately the intruders want a taco, as the thieves are seen searching the place.
