Posted April 19, 2013
Durham, N.C. — Durham County sheriff’s detectives said they are searching for two men who robbed a McDonald’s early Friday.
An employee of the restaurant at 1708 S. Miami Blvd. called 911 shortly after midnight to report the crime. The employee told deputies that two men armed with pistols entered the restaurant through the drive-through window, corralled employees and took cash from the registers.
Deputies said they used a canine to track the assailants, but the trail disappeared. They are reviewing security video from McDonald’s and surrounding businesses and re-interviewing witnesses.
Descriptions of the robbers were incomplete. One was described as white with a large freckle or mole under his right eye. He was wearing light-colored pants, a dark hooded jacket and gloves.
The second man was wearing dark-colored pants, a dark beanie, white gloves and had a red-and-gray backpack.
Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 919-560-0880 or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers pays cash for information leading to an arrest, and callers may remain confidential.
