"We learned that it has become a game for area teens to be removing the plastic 'order numbers' from the restaurant," the department said in a Feb. 25 Facebook post. "Removing these items without consent is a theft, which could result in a citation being issued for Theft of Property under $100."

The post has been shared more than 3,000 times, sometimes by members of the Whataburger cult following who incriminated themselves and their friends. 

But authorities aren't taking the shenanigans of swiping the numbers as souvenirs of late nights and good food lightly. They added a side-by-side comparison showing how many table tents the restaurant has in stock versus how many the department has recovered. The latter was laid out across the hood of a cruiser, staged much like a drug bust.

"We asked that you be aware of this and leave these items behind when visiting our local store. The issue has become very apparent when we (NEPD), at times possess more of these numbers than the restaurant does."

They're on to you, Whataburger Whataburglars.
