HAZEL PARK, Mich. -

A robbery suspect was caught eating breakfast at a McDonald’s in Hazel Park after allegedly stealing $725 from a Kroger in the same city.

David Hult, 43, of St. Clair Shores, allegedly went to the Kroger on John R. Road Sunday morning and asked a cashier at the U-Scan for change. When she opened the register, police believe Hult pushed her out of the way and took $725 before taking off.

Officers later found some of the man's clothing near the grocery store.

Police tracked down and arrested Hult who was eating at McDonald’s just a few hundred feet away.

He was arraigned Monday in Hazel Park district court on a charge of unarmed robbery. He’s jailed on a $75,000 cash bond.

If convicted, Hult could face up to 15 years in prison. He'll be back in court next month.
