According to KCRG, "Cedar Rapids police were dispatched to a fast food restaurant on Wednesday afternoon for an armed robbery."

The robbery happened on Mt. Vernon Road at the Burger King. Employees told police a black male walked in the restaurant and demanded money. The person was carrying a hand gun at the time of the robbery.

The KCRG story indicated the man left with an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene on foot. I'm surprised he didn't ask for a Whopper before leaving, I would have.

I've never held up a burger joint, but if I did I would want some food before I go. I mean, if you get caught your're going to jail anyway. You might as well be full, fat and happy!

This robbery is still investigation and this is all the information we have at this time. If you have any inforamtion, contact Cedar Rapids Police at 319-286-5491.
