Police are searching for a man who’s been targeting hotels in the town of Dalton, Georgia. Buzz60’s Mercer Morrison has the story.

One of the frequent benefits of staying at a hotel is the free lobby breakfast. Although it may just be a bowl of cereal, croissant, or a waffle from the griddle, it’s a nice perk.

Admit it. We’ve all wondered how easy it would be to wander into a hotel, dine on the free breakfast and then dash before anybody noticed. But one man is actually out doing it, and proving that it’s probably a bad idea.

Police in Dalton, Georgia, are searching for a man they’re calling the “hotel breakfast bandit,” WRCBtv News reported.

The man has been wandering into chain hotels and stealing things like plastic silverware, shampoo and towels, in addition to the free buffet breakfast.

Earlier this month, the man wandered into a Holiday Inn Express in Dalton. He ate from the free breakfast bar in the lobby and began wandering the hotel halls. He was spotted by security, and after being approached by the general manager of the Holiday Inn, the man said he was “just checking how easy it is to get into hotels and get free stuff.”
