Sydney Man Accused Of Stealing After Being Given The Wrong Macca's Order

A Sydney man has been accused of stealing after he took home the wrong McDonald's order.

Santo Le Rocca told The Daily Telegraph that he had paid a visit to the Macca's drive-through at Bass Hill a couple of weeks ago, ordering two double cheeseburgers, two large chips, nuggets and two frozen Cokes.

While waiting for his food, Le Rocca says he filmed the staff on Snapchat before being given his order and heading home.

But when the father-of-two got there, he realised he had been given someone else's food, which he estimated to have been about $17 more than what he had asked for.

Two hours later, two police knocked on his door.

"They accused me of stealing McDonald's and I thought it was a joke," Le Rocca said. "It's a ridiculous waste of time to chase people for getting the wrong Macca's order.

"Shouldn't they be fighting crime and not fighting the Hamburglar?"

NSW Police confirmed they spoke with a 44-year-old man at Georges Hall at about 10.30pm on March 22 following reports he had "attended a fast food restaurant about 9pm... and began filming staff without permission and allegedly failed to pay for food."

They added: "Following inquiries, police will not be taking any formal action due to conflicting versions provided."
