Charles Edward Blackmon Jr., 40, of Los Angeles, was taken into custody on Thursday in Anaheim, according to the Anaheim Police Department.
Blackmon was booked on suspicion of burglary.
The burglary took place around 2:15 a.m. on Nov. 22 when two men entered the restaurant in the 2800 block of West La Palma Avenue.
A police investigation revealed the men crawled through the drive-through window and managed to steal the ATM using a pallet jack.
They covered the surveillance cameras inside the business using napkins. One of the napkins fell from the camera it covered and Blackmon moved to replace it. When he did, the camera got a good look at his face.
The second man is also described as a black man, about five feet seven inches tall with a medium build wearing black clothing.
Anyone with information on the burglary is urged to call Detective Chris Cooper at 714-765-1185.
