ANCHORAGE- A midtown restaurant was robbed over the weekend for nearly $2,500 worth of meat.

The owners of Kriner's Diner took to Facebook Saturday Morning with a surveillance cam photo of the suspects and their license plate.

In their post, they asked that the robbers return the meat within 8 hours, saying they would not press charges.

When they didn't turn themselves in, a Facebook friend tipped off the owners of the vehicle's location.

The owners then followed them until the police arrived.

The meat was not recovered, however; the suspects were connected to 7 other robberies.
