A manhunt is underway for a cheeky thief who broke into a butcher shop and cooked himself a meat feast worth hundreds of dollars.

The Hungry Thief broke into Marshalls Quality Meats in a shopping center in Langwarrin, Melbourne city center around 11 p.m. on April 5.

The man spent just under two hours preparing and cooking various cuts of meat, before quickly cleaning the store and heading out.

The intruder broke into the Melbourne Butcher at around 11 p.m. on April 5. Police released an image of a man (above) they believe can help them with their investigations.

Store manager Scott Little told Daily Mail Australia he opened the store on Easter Monday morning to find “one hell of a mess”.

“He decided to play butcher, to try his hand at something different,” he joked.

Mr Little, who is celebrating two decades as a butcher this year, said it took him several minutes to realize someone had broken into the store.

“It was one of those moments where I was like, what the hell is this?” Mr. Little said.

However, once he started looking at the store’s CCTV footage, it all became clear.

Store manager and 20-year butcher Scott Little said he opened the store the next morning to find

In the footage, the man is seen marinating the meat and then cooking a selection of expensive cuts of porterhouse filet mignon, pork chop and steak.

The amateur chef even tried his hand at smoking prime rib and reheated chicken Kiev in the microwave.

Mr Little said it didn’t seem like the man knew what he was doing because he hadn’t properly closed the oven and left most of the food half-cooked.

“He even made himself a Milo in the back room,” said the veteran butcher.

“It really happened at home.

In another bizarre twist, Mr. Little said he didn’t think the man had eaten meat, choosing instead to put on a cleaning apron and start tidying up the store.

Frankston Police believe the intruder stole around $ 410 in cash and a Holden car key, which was later found a short distance from the store.

The perpetrator was described as being between 40 and 50 years old, Caucasian and wearing a white striped hoodie, black and white striped pants, black shoes and a black hat.

Police have released images of a man they believe can help them with their investigations.

Anyone with information regarding the break-in should contact Crime Stoppers.
