“Two masked men robbed the Burger King on Yelm Avenue at gunpoint early this morning [Nov. 11], according to Yelm Police Chief Todd Stancil.
According to Stancil:
The robbery occurred at roughly 1:30 a.m., while a female manager and a male employee were the only ones left in the fast food restaurant after closing time.
After the male employee had opened a door as he was locking up for the night, the suspects emerged from some bushes, and bowled their way into the restaurant.
One of the suspects was armed with a black semi-automatic handgun. The suspects walked the male employee to a bathroom, where they zip tied him to a railing. The unarmed suspect watched over the male employee.
The armed suspect made contact with the manager, zip tied her in a back room, and took an estimated $1,500…
One of the suspects called his companion “Josh” during the robbery.
The armed suspect is described as a white male, about six-feet, two-inches tall, 175 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.
The other suspect is described as about five-feet, seven-inches tall, about 200 pounds, possibly Hispanic. Both were wearing ski masks…
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call 911,” quoting The Olympian.
YELM IS NO LONGER JUST A SMALL, SLEEPY LITTLE TOWN WHEN AN ARMED ROBBERY OCCURS.
