Police: Wendy's burglar ate raw hamburger

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a woman who allegedly broke into a Wendy's fast-food restaurant in Medford, ate raw hamburger and stuffed frozen chicken patties in her pocket.

Kimberly Rose Hogan, 40, no listed address, was due to be arraigned Wednesday on an indictment charging her with second-degree burglary, second-degree criminal mischief and third-degree theft. She failed to appear in Jackson County Circuit Court, spurring a judge to issue the warrant.

At about 4 a.m. April 25, Hogan allegedly shattered the drive-thru window of a Wendy's near the Rogue Valley Mall with a large rock and climbed inside. The rock also damaged the floor inside the restaurant, according to an affidavit by a Medford police officer who responded to an alarm at the business.

The officer reportedly saw Hogan running through the restaurant and trying to escape through the doors. She was taken into custody by a second officer. Hogan allegedly admitted to throwing the rock through the window and climbing inside, the affidavit said.

She also admitted to eating raw hamburger and salad in a back room, the affidavit alleged.

During the booking process at the Jackson County Jail, two large frozen chicken patties, salad dressing and a package of Wendy's coffee were found inside her coat pocket, the affidavit said.

Hogan was released from jail on her own recognizance April 27, court records show.
