Robbers hit Burger King

Two men robbed a Burger King at gun point at about 8 a.m. today, said Mary DeLoney, an intern at the Office of Public Information at the Conway Police Department.


The men came into the fast-food restaurant at 905 Skyline Drive, went to the bathroom and came out with bandannas covering their faces. Each had a gun, DeLoney said.

The pair forced several employees to the back room but kept one up front to empty the cash register. No customers were present at the time, DeLoney said.

"They just emptied the cash register," she said.

Police don't know the amount of money taken, DeLoney said.

The two black men thought to be in their late 20s drove away in a two-door black vehicle with a gold pinstripe. Police from various departments are searching for the vehicle, DeLoney said.
