Jacksonville police searching for suspect behind McDonald's armed robbery

JACKSONVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - The Jacksonville Police Department is looking for the man responsible for an armed robbery at a local McDonald's Wednesday night. 

On January 13, officer’s responded to an armed robbery at the McDonald's on North First Street in Jacksonville. According to the Jacksonville Police Department, a male suspect entered the McDonald's on Wednesday night and displayed a gun to the employee, forcing the employee to empty out the restaurant's register and safe. 

Reports by Jacksonville police state that the suspect first went into the restaurant through the south-side entrance and stood in line to order food. The suspect then made an order and paid for it. As the employee was getting ready to give the suspect his change, the suspect stated, “Do you know what this is?” The man then displayed a dark colored semi-automatic pistol and demanded the money from the register. The suspect then said, “safe also.” The suspect then walked through the side-counter door to follow the employee into the office. The employee opened the safe and gave the money to the suspect.
