    Drive through robbery

    http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.d...005/1077/COL02

    I'm sure they mean that the robber displayed a hand gun, because i don't think just displaying his hand would have been much of a threat unless he was Wolverine. First time I've ever heard of a robbery through a drive through, am I just sheltered? Is this a common practice?

    LoL! There are a few dunkin donuts around here, and they do get hit too, same as the other fast food places. A lot of these types of robberies are the buddies or boyfriends of employees working at the fast food place. Its a quick way to make a few hundred dollars, and if the employee can't or wont give a accurate description, there is little LE can do.

    I refuse to be seen anywhere near a donut shop, even though they are the only places to get anything to eat at 3am.

    Way off topic, but a few years go I clocked a truck going 45 in a 25 zone... I gave chase and stopped the truck. After I made the stop, I noticed it was a Dolly Madison delivery truck- it made the little local paper. I never will hear the end of that.

    Message has to be - nowhere is guaranteed safe!!!

    Even stopped waiting in line to get an order - watch six, use mirrors and spot any trouble coming before it gets to you - and so be prepared.

    Pretty despicable if truth be known - but crime-critters follow different rules than us honest folk.

    I've heard of banks (seriously!) having a been drive-thru targets.

    Wouldn't it be easy to just duck or step away from the window if you're an employee?? (I know those drive-thru windows definitely aren't bullet-proof!, uh, not from expierience or anything!)
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
