Suspect slapped man, stole his green chile cheeseburger, police say

Anthony Frazier, 25 (SFPD)

A green chile cheeseburger can cost up to $8 dollars, but for a Santa Fe man, it was worth jail time.

Anthony Frazier, 25, is charged with robbery after slapping a man and stealing his green chile cheeseburger on Sunday, according to a complaint filed in Santa Fe County Magistrate Court.

“Defendant did steal a thing of value to-wit: Hamburger,” an officer wrote in the complaint.

Police say the theft occurred at the Shake Foundation, at 631 Cerrillos Road.

A witness told police Frazier, who had a brown belt around his neck, began dancing around the victim as he ate a green chile cheeseburger.

Frazier knocked the cheeseburger out of the man’s hands before slapping him across the face, police say.

“Frazier picked up the burger and took off running heading north on Cerrillos Road,” the officer wrote.

The witness identified Frazier as the man “who struck him and took his hamburger.”

The Shake Foundation’s green chile cheeseburgers are made with sirloin and chuck beef, with no hormones or antibiotics, and jack cheese, according to its website. The burgers run between $4 and $8.

“Dedicated the preservation of the original green chile cheeseburger,” the website states.
