“Yes, all that for a hot pocket,” the man said.
The reporter continued, asking the man “you broke into a bank for a hot pocket?”
“Hot Pocket. Hot Pocket,” the man replied.
“Was it worth it?” the reporter then asked.
“Hell yeah it was worth it. [expletive] yes, it was worth it,” the man said. “A Hot Pocket? Hell yeah.”
The man was arrested on suspicion of breaking into the bank. Authorities have not released his name or any other details.
