The Evansville Police Department is investigating a theft incident that took place at the Green River Road Denny's restaurant after they say two individuals broke in and cooked some eggs in the kitchen.

According to an investigating officer, the individual who reported the theft incident was able to show the officer video footage of two offenders walking into the restaurant around 2:02 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

EPD says the offenders went into the kitchen and prepared some eggs, and that they left about 10 minutes later.

Then, roughly an hour later right around 3:00 a.m., EPD says the same offenders returned, only to make more eggs before leaving the restaurant once again around 3:04 a.m., after being confronted by the reporter of the incident.

"It was two males, and they basically cooked their own breakfast," explained EPD Sergeant Nick Winsett. "They were asked to leave, they left - but they came back and created some more issues."

"No damage was done, other than the fact they made their own breakfast," Sgt. Winsett continued. "Denny's resolved that, but they left before authorities arrived on scene."

EPD says the egg thieves didn't force entry into the building and that the door seemed to be open both times. 

According to EPD, the total estimated loss caused by the theft is $1.00.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
