An escaped prisoner was caught trying to get back into a Tennessee jail with four MacDonald's hamburgers.

The suspected armed robber was caught by a police officer outside Roane County Jail, reports WVLT-TV news.

Sergeant Wes Stooksbury arrested the man and says he was carrying a package containing clothes, liquor, prescription pills, crack cocaine - and the burgers.

It is unclear whether the man was planning to keep his haul for himself or if he was trying to smuggle it in to sell to other prisoners.

It's believed he had escaped for only a short time. The Roane Sheriff's Department is still investigating the case.
