LEE COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

Police in Southwest Florida are looking for three men who were only wearing underwear, when they broke into a restaurant and stole fixins for an early morning cookout. Surveillance cameras recorded images of the men, one of whom was clad in tightie whities.

Detectives say the men broke into Doc's Beach House in Bonita Springs around 3 a.m. on Sunday, July 20.

After roaming around the kitchen area, the men picked up a case of hamburgers and red bell peppers.

They then took off their underwear and walked around the kitchen nude.

Investigators think the men left the restaurant and walked to the beach toward the Collier County line, where red peppers were found on the beach a few hours later.

Authorities have not said if the men put their underwear back on before leaving the restaurant.

It appears as though the thieves may have also stole some shrimp, according to the following post on Doc's Beach House's Facebook page.

"So...three naked guys robbed Doc's Beach House in Bonita Springs, FL this past weekend. They stole some award winning burgers and shrimp. They haven't caught them yet so if you blacked out over the weekend and woke up with a case of tasty meats, please tag yourself in this photo."

If you recognize the men in the video, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS. Callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000. Tips may also be made online at www.swflcrimestoppers.org or by texting a tip to CRIMES (274637) Keyword: REWARD.
