Worker at Irvine Burger King Arrested for Repeatedly Stealing Lunch Money from Disabled Woman

It seems Chik-fil-A isn't the only fast-food chain with asshole workers in Irvine. Yesterday, Irvine PD arrested Burger King employee Luis Maximino Lucero Ballinas after a weeks-long investigation in which they discovered he had repeatedly stolen money from a disabled woman.

The woman's parents became suspicious after noticing she would return home from Burger King without all of her money, and alerted police, who monitored Lucero for the past month with the cooperation of Burger King management and caught him yesterday taking the woman's money without giving her change or ringing up the sale.

Lucero is facing charges--in the meanwhile, may someone steal his lunch money at Theo Lacy.
