The Burger King restaurant in this city shut down after being robbed at about 9 p.m. Thursday.
No one was injured as the suspect drove up in a steel blue colored Ford Explorer with Sharpnack license frames on it, according to a clerk and Police Chief Mark Holden.
Shortly after the incident, the eatery, located at 1148 Conwell Avenue, closed its doors and police officers moved in to interview the victims.
The Burger King clerk who confirmed the robbery referred further questions to the district manager.
Holden was briefed by a dispatcher but didn’t have many details as the investigation was just beginning and the officers were unavailable.
While the suspect apparently indicated there was a threat of a weapon, the clerk “did not see it,” Holden said.
As far as the amount of money taken, that also was uncertain at this time. “The dispatcher wasn’t sure what was taken,” Holden said.
The Huron County Sheriff’s Office quickly issued a “be on the look out” for the suspect's vehicle telling area officers that the “armed robbery” had just occurred.
The public is encouraged to keep their eyes open for the suspect's vehicle and contact local authorities immediately if they see the vehicle or have an information that can lead to an arrest.
