FIRST ON WITN: One Gloved Robber Tries To Hold-Up Hardees

There are no arrests yet in the attempted hold-up of a fast food restaurant Monday night in Kinston where a one-gloved robber left empty handed.

Just before 10:00 p.m. Kinston police were called about the attempted robbery of the Hardees at the intersection of U.S. 70 and Highway 258.

Witnesses told police the would-be robber ran into the business, behind the counter and toward the office area. He then attempted to run out the back door, but it was locked. The man then ran out the front door empty handed.

Police say he was a white man wearing a dark face mask, grey hoodie, black coat, blue jeans and black Nike tennis shoes. The attempted robber was wearing just one glove.

    All the robber got was a cold chicken sandwich and some old fries. Bad thing was, he had to wait 45 minutes for that.

    Too bad none of the employees were give a plan by management, in case of robbery...like throwing hot coffee on him...no plan at all.

      They don't have a Mr. Kreme...or Mrs. Dunkin character either. No wonder they're not as successful as the "golden arches".

      Elvis was the get-away-driver. Didn't anyone tell you that Micheal isn't really dead?

      Nah, he's running for office and wanted to gop in and say (de rent's too darned high", but he couldn't find the other glove. So he just decided to rob the place instead.

    if i was gonna rob somewhere it sure wouldnt be the Hardees in kinston! It would be bojangles or McDonalds, thats where the money is! Nobody is ever at the Hardees! if im gonna go to jail it sure isnt gonna be for 20 dollars, which is all you gonna get from Hardees. not that im advocating stealing, but this joker need to be on Worlds Dumbest...?

    Hmmmm I wonder what he looks like??

    It sounds like it could be the same guy who robbed the other locations. As many undercover cop cars that there is during drug bust,it looks like they could be used to see if they could find this low life, that rather steal than work. Before someone gets hurt!
