CHRISTIANSTED — A deft thief climbed through a fast food restaurant’s window in order to rob the register of cash on Sunday night, authorities said.
The 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to investigate a robbery at the McDonald’s restaurant in Golden Rock at 9:01 p.m. Sunday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
A restaurant employee working the drive-thru window reported that after taking orders, she closed the window and stepped away from the register, according to the VIPD. She was then approached by a “slim male, wearing a black ski mask, black jacket, and jeans.”
“The assailant entered the restaurant by climbing through the drive-thru window,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “He led the employee back to the register, forced her to open it, took cash and fled through the window.”
