Attention Five Guys Hamburgler: Rival Joint Has A Tasty Plea Deal

Turn yourself in.

While police in Washington D.C. search for a real-life hamburgler, one restaurant chain is cooking up its own attempt at justice.

Wayback Burgers is offering a year of free burgers to a man who authorities say snuck into a Five Guys location for a midnight snack.

Security footage shared by D.C. Metro Police shows the suspect possibly going "all the way" in the Five Guys kitchen during the early morning hours of Friday, March 18.

"To that gentleman, I’d like to say that we all make mistakes – from committing this illegal act to your choice of burgers. I strongly encourage you to do the right thing and turn yourself in right away," John Eucalitto, president of Wayback Burgers, said in a statement.

Here is where it gets juicy.

"After you take accountability for your actions, Wayback Burgers will give you FREE burgers for one year. It’s not too late to turn it around based on what you did," Eucalitto said.

Quite a deal, right?

According to the Washington City Paper, police classified the incident as Burglary II, which could draw two to 15 years in prison.

Authorities released this photo of the suspect:
