WOULD-BE ROBBERS DON'T HAVE IT THEIR WAY AT DRIVE-THROUGH WINDOW
Broward Sheriff’s Office robbery detectives have released surveillance video from an Oakland Park McDonald’s in an effort to find the two men who tried to rob the store via the drive-through window. The attempted robbery happened just before 3:55 a.m. at 3073 W. Oakland Park Blvd. in Oakland Park. The video shows a red Dodge Neon stopping at the drive-through intercom where customers order food and then driving up to the pay window. One suspect was not in the car and walked close to the building toward the drive-through window. Another camera inside the store shows the employee at the window, apparently speaking to someone in the Neon. At one point, she appeared to try to signal to another employee behind her and then quickly slammed the window shut and ran. Both suspects were black males in their mid-20s. The first suspect was heavyset, wearing a plaid shirt, blue shorts and flip flops. The second suspect had short hair and was wearing a white tank top. The vehicle had tints and was missing the front driver's-side hub cap. BSO detectives say it is possible that these are the same suspects involved in two similar robberies in Sunrise. Anyone with information about this attempted robbery can contact BSO's Robbery Unit at (954) 321-4270 or report information anonymously to Crime Stoppers of Broward County at (954) 493-TIPS (8477) or online at www.browardcrimestoppers.org.
