An apparently hungry thief broke into a Subway shop in D.C. overnight, jumped over the counter and made himself a sandwich.

Surveillance footage shared by D.C. police on Tuesday shows a young man in shorts and a collared shirt stride into the Subway location in the 1700 block of G Street NW, near George Washington University.

He grabs a bag of chips, hops over the counter and falls. Then, he searches around the kitchen, locates a loaf of bread and begins to make a sandwich. The sandwich-making process is edited out of the video, but police said it was a chicken sandwich worth $8.49.

The man appears to have trouble finding the door, kicks it and walks out.

He's wanted for burglary for the Aug. 2 crime, which occurred about 1:50 a.m.

Anyone with information is asked to call police. A reward of as much as $1,000 is available.
