A hungry Fort Meade man is sitting in the Polk County jail for throwing a brick threw the door of a convenience store to steal a single honey bun.

Ryan Fricks grabbed a couple packs of cigarettes and two energy drinks in the process, according deputies. 

Fricks told investigators he was on a "secret and classified mission" and that he didn't care about the money he was just thirsty.

The burglary happened early Wednesday morning at the Dixie #2 convenience store in Frostproof. 

Fricks admitted that after stealing the items he hid in the bushes to eat the honey bun and drink the Monster energy drinks, while watching police respond to the burglary.

They later found him hiding between two buses at a nearby school.
