When you gotta eat, you gotta eat: A man was arrested Monday night in Ventura after he was discovered inside the kitchen of a local pizza joint, having broken in to make himself a meal.

The incident took place at around 10 p.m. at the Pizza Chief restaurant, according to the Ventura County Star.

The suspect, identified as 37-year-old Lance Conley, a "homeless Ventura man," was detained by employees, who caught the intruder helping himself to the fixings in the kitchen.

Conley had apparently entered the pizza place through an open window, say investigators.
