PORTLAND, Maine – A man suspected of break

PORTLAND, Maine – 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 said 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. He also left a refrigerator open, causing about $1,000 worth of food to be thrown away.
