LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A suspect in a burglary at Cancun Mexican Restaurant made themselves a mixed drink before leaving.

Cancun was closed on May 7 when the restaurant was burglarized.

The burglars "made themselves at home," Cancun Mexican Restaurant manager Alice Lopez said.

It was suspect Tiffany Wiggins, 32, of Sulphur, who made the drink, Lopez said.

"She played with the register and then she walked out with her mixed drink," Lopez said. 

Authorities with the Lake Charles Police Department announced Tuesday morning that arrest warrants had been issued for Wiggins and Lake Charles man Aaron "Cookie" Cook, 36.

Cook was arrested without incident by the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office around 1:30 p.m. today, said Deputy Chief Mark Kraus, Lake Charles Police Department spokesman.

Both were being sought on charges of simple burglary and theft. Judge Clayton Davis set bond at $3,500 for both. Wiggins also has an outstanding warrant for a separate case through probation and parole.

The warrants were issued after an "overwhelming response from the public and after speaking with an eyewitness," said Kraus. "The detectives that are working this case say they had 24 plus calls about the surveillance video that was released."

Lake Charles police released surveillance photos on May 11.

Although the burglary only resulted in a loss of around $125 for the restaurant, Kraus said every case is important. 

"Whether (the crime) is one dollar, or an entire jewelry box, or a million dollars, or cars or whatever is valuable to somebody, that crime and (the victims) are important to us," said Kraus. 

Kraus asked anyone with information about Wiggins' whereabouts to call (337) 491-1311.
