You might be wondering what someone could possibly steal from Whataburger that they would want back? Certainly not any of the food. Well, apparently teens were stealing the plastic order numbers.

This isn't anything new. Teens have been doing things like this for ages. But the Northeast Police Department did post this to their Facecbook page.


Recently the Northeast Police Department has been recovering a large quantity of stolen property that belongs to our local Whataburger Restaurant.

We have learned that it has become a game for area teens to be removing the plastic “order numbers” from the restaurant when in attendance. Removing these items without consent is a theft, which could result in a citation being issued for Theft of Property under $100.00.

We asked that you be aware of this and leave these items behind when visiting our local store. The issue has become very apparent when we (NEPD), at times possess more of these numbers than the restaurant does.

And yeah, I laughed at that last line pretty damn hard.
