Gunman robs Checker's
Boca Raton, FL On Monday, June 27, at 5:00 in the afternoon, Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of an armed robbery attempt that had just occurred at the Checker's Restaurant, 500 East Yamato Road.
Arriving officers met with the manager and the victim, an employee of Checkers and were told the following details. The employee was working at the drive-thru window, when a maroon pick-up truck drove up to the window without having stopped to place an order. When the employee opened the window to speak to the driver, he pointed a small, black, semi-automatic handgun at her and said, Give me the money. When the employee did not respond, the suspect said, Can you open the drawer? The employee told the suspect she had to check and then notified her manager. The manager went to the drive-thru window and the suspect again said, Give me the money, but did not show her the gun. As the manager called 911, the suspect fled south on Federal Highway without receiving any cash.
If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Scott Hanley at (561) 338-1344 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.
