CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The early bird gets the worm, but criminals who work later usually get more cash.
A male and female stick-up team got up early one morning to rob the Bojangles on Freedom Drive.
Shortly after the restaurant opened at 5:00AM, a delivery door in the back was left open. This turned into a perfect opportunity for a man dressed in a skeleton mask to stick a gun in the back of one of the workers.
He ordered the worker to the floor. While he went to look for other employees, the woman acted nervous, telling her partner to hurry up.
"And he's making all the commands, the female, she's just with him," said Detective Marty Cuthbertson, "she's not saying anything."
Two more employees were located and told to lie down. The manager was given specific instructions.
"He demanded all the money from the safe, but they didn't have access to the safe."
As it turned out, the manager was so new, she didn't have the combination. So, the man in the skeleton mask demanded the cash drawers, but at that time of day, there was only petty cash in each one. Had the robbery taken place later in the day, the cash drawers would have been full.
Detective Cuthbertson says this could have been an inside job. "I think it may be somebody who knows they open that door certain times of day when certain deliveries come. It could be an ex-employee or someone with knowledge of the goings on of this business."
If you can help police identify the robbers, call Crimestoppers at (704) 334-1600. There is up to $1,000 reward money available.
