Man Robs Shop, Gets Away in Pickup Pulling Trailer
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A man who robbed a Des Moines area fast food restaurant had an unusual getaway car.
The Polk County Sheriff's Office says a man entered a Wendy's Restaurant just before 5 p.m. Sunday. He told an employee he had a weapon and demanded money.
He was given an undisclosed amount of cash, and then fled across a parking lot of an adjacent building.
He got into a maroon Ford Ranger pickup pulling a large trailer that contained furniture, covered by a dark tarp.
Witnesses say the trailer had blue, out of state license plates.
