The HPD Patrol Officer observed a male walking away from the rear of the restaurant dressed in all black, with a hood pulled tightly around his face and unsuccessfully attempting to conceal a large pair of bolt cutters. The restaurant was darkened and closed. The Patrol Officer watched as the suspect continued towards a nearby construction site. During the investigation, Officers approached the suspect. The suspect was in possession of nine dollars in rolled coins, a cash register key and a Boar's Head pencil. The bolt cutters were found tossed in the grass near the suspect.
