I was dispatched to 1500 N Willow Rd in reference to a theft report. The reporter said at approximately 0440 hours, employees went out to the main dining area to take a break before closing the store at 0500 hours. The reporter turned back to counter area and noticed the drive thru cash drawer was open. He went to look at the security video and observed a white male wearing long black sleeves open the drive thru window, reach in and access the cash drawer. The suspect took the money and put the cash drawer back. The video did not show whether or not the suspect was in a vehicle or was on foot. The reporter stated he believed the suspect was a former employee because they knew how to open the cash drawer. He said only an employee would know how to open it. The suspect had been fired from the business about a week ago for not showing up to work. The reporter did not know how to enlarge the video feed, but it appeared the suspect had a tattoo on his right wrist and hand. He said this looked similar to the tattoos of the ex-employee he believes is responsible for the theft.
