We all know the magic of a taco. And Frijoles & Frescas Grilled Tacos in Las Vegas knows the magic of a taco too, which is what they have based their viral campaign on to catch a burglar! Two burglars broke into the franchise located in Las Vegas. So, the management of Frijoles & Frescas Grilled Tacos took the security footage and turned it into a hilarious video, which may help them catch the culprit.

In the video, the burglars break into the the restaurant and rooting through the restaurant, finally stealing two of the registers, and then fleeing. But Frijoles took the footage and clarified in the video that these guys are not just regular burglars– they’re just hungry for delicious tacos.

The Las Vegas location’s manager Greg Carlson was interviewed by the Las Vegas Sun, and he shared his plan behind the video campaign. “We wanted a way to get the word out there, and thought we could reach more people by making it a little more light-hearted,” Carlson said.

Carlson’s plan obviously worked! The video has nearly three million views on youtube. The burglary is one in a series in the area in which three people are suspected, according to the Metro Police. The spokesman for the Metro, Michael Rodriguez stated, “These three individuals are part of a larger string of burglaries in which smaller restaurants and fast food restaurants with glass windows are being targeted and ransacked. We have not identified any suspects in this case, but we are aware of what’s going on.”

Luckily though, Greg Carlson of Frijoles said that the burglars didn’t end up taking all that much from the restaurant in the end. Well that’s good news! Maybe they really did just want some tacos. Either way, the videos have gotten so many views, hopefully they can catch the culprits. Or as the video says, just get them some tacos!
