DALLAS –– Dallas police are searching for for a man who has robbed five Burger King locations across the city since December 23.
According to department spokeswoman Melinda Gutierrez, the suspect, a six-foot black man in his twenties who weighs between 150 and 170 pounds and has a long goatee, targets the businesses between 6:25 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.
He enters the restaurant, pulls a gun and orders employees to empty the safe and registers. The last robbery occured on March 31. Surveillance footage shows him driving away in a Toyota 4 Runner or an Isuzu Rodeo, Gutierrez said.
According to a police report, the first robbery occurred on Dec. 23 of last year at a Burger King located at 725 W. Illinois Ave. The man had a gun in his waist band and told the clerk that "everyone would be fine as long as she followed directions." The employee was ordered to stay in the office. The man got away with $600 in a paper Burger King bag, the document says.
On Jan. 2, the man entered the fast food restaurant at 2403 W. Wheatland Rd. with a black semi-auto handgun in his palm.
"Don't even move! Give me the money!," the man yelled at a witness.
The suspect got the key to the register from an employee and stole $260 from it. He then ordered the clerks to open the safe. The police report says when they said they couldn't, the man fled.
On Jan. 14, the man went north, robbing a Burger King in the 11800 block of N. Central Expressway. At 7:20 a.m., the suspect entered, pointed a gun at a clerk and ordered the safe opened. The suspect escaped with $1,100, a police report says.
During a Feb. 3 robbery at a Burger King at 2441 Walnut Hill Lane, the man again pointed a gun at a clerk and had her empty the register. The suspect got away with $160, the report says.
And, the final robbery, at a Burger King location at 102 E. Jefferson in Oak Cliff, the man entered at 8:50 a.m. and robbed the employees at gunpoint, stealing $495, according to a report.
