Maybe the suspects were pretending to be the McDonald’s character Hamburglar.
But in this case they didn’t appear too interested in the fast food restaurant’s cheeseburgers, but rather its drawer full of cash.
On Saturday around 3:15 a.m., police in the District said, three people jumped through the drive-through window of the fast-food restaurant in the unit block of I Street in Southeast Washington, pushing aside the clerk and stealing cash from the register.
Police in the District put out a surveillance video showing the three “people of interest” they are looking for in connection with the incident.
The surveillance video shows a white SUV pulling into the drive-through lane of the McDonald’s.
Once at the drive-through window, the vehicle backs up and the suspects went through the window one after the other. Surveillance video showed two people grab cash from the drawer, with one of them holding the clerk back. The video also shows the suspects appearing to run through the restaurant.
The three suspects were wearing coats or sweatshirts. One person was wearing a black parka with fur around the hood, another was in a white sweatshirt and a third in a black sweat shirt.
A reward of up to $10,000 is offered for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction.
