Man enters Melbourne butcher shop for a cook up, a Milo and about $400 in cash.


A burglar has helped himself to hundreds of dollars worth of meat, some cash – and a Milo when breaking into a Melbourne butcher shop.

According to the Eyewatch – Frankston Police Service Area Facebook page, the man entered Marshall’s Quality Meats in Langwarrin on the evening of April 5.

Once inside the store, he cooked and smoked a variety of meat and stole about $410 in cash.

Manager of the shop Scott Little said when he arrived the following morning everything was a mess.

“There was just crap everywhere,” he told 9News.

Mr Little he first assumed his boss had let himself in to do some work and a spot of cooking.

But he quickly realised a stranger had come in and decided to play chef.

“I realised – nah, some funny bugger has jumped the counter and decided to play butcher for the day.”

After checking security camera footage, it appears the man stayed in the store for about an hour and a half but did not prove to be a culinary mastermind.

“He didn’t even go for the good meat,” Mr Little said.

“He tried to smoke some but didn’t do a good job.

“He wanted to give it a crack, he obviously can’t do it properly at home and now he knows he can’t do it properly in a shop.”

The burglar took off with about $400 cash after his failed cook up but managed to enjoy a Milo. (Nine)

While attempting to cook the array of cuts, the burglar also helped himself to a hot drink not usually paired with red meat.

“He made himself a Milo and watched himself on the camera drinking it,” Mr Little said.

While the man helped himself to some decent meat, Glenn Marshall, owner of Marshall’s Quality Meats, said thankfully it wasn’t anything worth too much.

“It could have been a lot worse,” he said.

Despite the lengthy amount of time spent in the kitchen, Mr Marshall doesn’t believe the offender ate anything – nor does he think he has a future in the kitchen.

“I wouldn’t get him to cook me a meal,” he said.

“Maybe cook at home next time.”

The male offender is described as aged between 40-50 years, caucasian and was wearing black and white striped hooded jumper, black and white striped pants, black shoes and a black cap.
