Armed Robber at Burger King in Lubbock Claimed to Know Safe Code, But Couldn’t Get In
More information has been revealed concerning an armed robbery that happened at a Lubbock Burger King on Monday, August 30th, 2021.
At around 10 p.m., an employee of the Burger King in the 7000 block of University Avenue stepped outside for a smoke break when they felt one of the suspects point a gun against his back. The suspect told the employee to take him to the store safe, but the employee said he didn't know the code. This apparently wasn't a problem, as the suspect said he already knew the code.
However, once the suspect was taken to the safe, he wasn't able to get the safe open.
KAMC News reports that a second armed suspect came into the store at a later point and took money from the drive-thru register. The suspects demanded more money from the other registers, but they were already empty.
As of Tuesday, September 7th, Lubbock police still haven't located the suspects.
Police still are saying that this robbery is "possibly related" to another armed robbery that happened that same day. That robbery happened at the Ace Cash Express in the 4600 block of 34th Street. A separate robbery also happened at a game room in Lubbock County the same day, but police haven't confirmed if it was related to the other 2.
Anyone with information on any of these armed robberies is asked to call Crime Line at 806-741-1000.
