A 24-year-old transient man was arrested over the weekend after he allegedly grabbed a bag full of cheeseburgers from an In-N-Out drive-thru as the server was handing the food through the window.
The driver told police that the man, later identified as Steven Windes, had stolen his order at the In-N-Out on El Camino Real on Friday, July 21, just before midnight. Though Windes reportedly fled the area in an unknown direction, the driver was able to give police a detailed description of the suspect, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
Officers spotted Windes the next day on the 200 block of Castro Street and detained him. During the interaction with police, officers say Windes appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance. He was arrested on robbery and drug charges.
