Police are investigating whether two robbers knew there would be a delivery made this morning to a normally closed fast food restaurant in Greenville.
The KFC/Long John Silvers Restaurant on Greenville Boulevard was robbed around 8:30 a.m. by two men.
Police say three employees were at the business helping unload a delivery truck when the two robbers came in the back door. They demanded money be put into a bag and then ran out the same door. A police K-9 tracked them to nearby Trade Street, where the scent was lost.
Police say there is no set schedule for the delivery truck and at this time don't know if the robbers were aware of the delivery or not. One of the robbers was armed with a handgun.
Police don't know if today's robbery is related to last night's attempted robbery at Popeye's on Memorial Drive.
