♦ According to Salisbury Police sources an armed robbery was reported Thursday around 10:44 p.m. at the Kentucky Fried Chicken at 1006 Mooresville Road in Salisbury.   Three KFC employees were forced to the floor in the manager’s office by two armed Black men wearing bandanas who came through the restaurant’s backdoor.

One gunman forced the employees into the manager’s office where he took their cell phones and had them open the safe. His partner emptied the cash register drawers into a bag. The original take was $1,639.

The police found the employee cell phones and the cash register drawers with half the stolen cash in shrubbery nearby soon after their arrival. An employee’s mother activated the “Find My Cell Phone App” which led to the stolen cellphones being located.

The robbers were said to be in their late teens to early 20’s and about 6 foot tall. One of the gunman wore a jogging suit and an American flag bandana while the other was attired in camouflage pants, a red bandana, and a white tank t-shirt.

The robbery remains under investigation. Security cam video may prove helpful in recognizing the 2 gunmen.

No arrests and no suspects at this time.
