FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) -- Authorities say a thief took a break during his burglary of a Southern California pizzeria to make himself a pizza pie before fleeing with the restaurant's delivery car.

Police say Oscar Sanchez broke into Big Slice Pizza in Fullerton, Calif., on Nov. 8. He was arrested on Wednesday and police posted security video of the pizza-making on Facebook on Friday.

Officials say Sanchez allegedly also stole the pizzeria's cash and tablets.

Security footage shows him stretching dough at the restaurant's counter.

It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
