Charles Edward Blackmon Accused of Being Wienerschnitzel Model-Burglar
Hey, remember that burglar who unwittingly posed for the surveillance camera at an Anaheim Wienerschnitzel restaurant last month?
According to Anaheim Police, Charles Edward Blackmon, 40, of Los Angeles, is their man.
Now cops hope to net the other guy.
Around 2:15 a.m. on Nov. 22, two burglars entered the hot doggery in the 2800 block of West La Palma Avenue through the drive-thru window. Once inside, they covered the surveillance cameras with napkins from inside the business. They went on to remove the ATM machine using a pallet jack.
But, some time during the operation, a napkin fell from a camera. As the suspect police identify as Blackmon replaced the napkin, the camera caught this image of him:
Smile! Cops say this is Charles Edward Blackmon.

Blackmon has been arrested on suspicion of burglary, but he apparently has not given up his partner, who is described as an African American male, 5-foot-7, medium build, and last seen wearing all black clothing and gloves. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Chris Cooper at 714.765.1185.
