Police Captain Dennis Miller stated that the man (who is walking with a noticeable limp) forced his way into the fast food restaurant. Police did not give any further information about what he stole since this is an ongoing investigation.

In New Jersey, Burglary is typically a crime of the third degree, however, in some cases, it may be considered second degree if the actor caused injury to another person, or if they used a weapon in the process. A crime of the second degree falls under the No Early Release Act ( NERA ), meaning that 85% of the sentence imposed must be served before becoming eligible for parole.
