A man who is on camera allegedly burglarizing a restaurant in Wichita last month has been identified and arrested.  

The man, identified as 41-year old John Avelar from Wichita, broke into the Heritage Restaurant at 4551 S Broadway through the restaurant's roof vent on August 15.  Video footage shows him walking around the restaurant eating chicken fingers and wearing no pants and just one shoe.  He was also seen stealing lottery tickets.

Police stated Saturday afternoon that Avelar has now been arrested in connection to this crime. He faces one count of theft related to the burglary of the Heritage Restaurant.
