Robbers Get Taco Bell Bank Deposit

It was a bad night for Taco Bells in Eastern Carolina. One had their bank deposit bag stolen while at another location a man tried to rob the drive-thru.

Kinston police say they're investigating the armed robbery of a bank deposit bag from a Taco Bell early Wednesday.

Witnesses told police that two young men, one armed with a hand gun, approached two employees in the parking lot of the Vernon Avenue business around 1:00 a.m. The robbers got away with the bank deposit bag and money belonging to the employees.

No one was injured and police say the deposit bag with the money has been recovered.

So far no arrests have been made.

The attempted robbery happened several hours earlier at a Taco Bell in Greenville. Police there say a man pulled up to the drive-thru and pointed a gun at the employee. The worker simply walked away from the drive-thru window area and the would-be robber drove off with nothing.

It does not appear the two cases are related.

    It would be so funny to see those dumb crooks for the Greenville robbery get arrested and there be other people talk junk to them. Hope all the robbers in both robberys get arrested and serve hard time for it anyway!

    Wow, glad I no longer live right down the street. Getting rougher around there daily, and working closer and closer to the other end of town.
