Lobster, Wine And Sleep Follow Maine Break-in

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 say 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 a white wine.

The Portland Press Herald reports 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.

    Oh brother. Another bleeding heart liberal probably. Community service? Rehabilitaion? He was already out on bail! He's a repeat offender! Some people can't be rehabilitated. Some people can't be reformed and changed. Lock his butt up and keep his criminal butt there. He's apparently not learning his lesson.

    People just don't understand Paul Bruneau. Society made him commit this horrible crime. Give him community service. Let him mop floors and clean toilets at the lobster company . Pay him at the minimum wage rate and let him work until he has paid back what he stole and damaged with interest.Who knows, by the time he has done that he may turn out to be a good employee and they may want to hire him.Never can tell.
