A hungry thief looking for a meal was thwarted when he stole two fake breakfast sandwiches from a convenience store.

The incident happened on Tuesday at about 3 a.m. at the 7-Eleven store at the corner of Nicol and Milton streets in south Nanaimo, a city on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

An employee told police that a man entered the store and stole two breakfast sandwiches that were actually plastic sales props worth about $70 each.

When he realized the sandwiches were fakes, the suspect tossed one across the street and pocketed the other.

Police found the suspect and fake sandwich at a nearby hotel and returned the prop to the store.

Since both items were recovered undamaged the store manager opted not to press charges.
