Robbers Hold Up Taco Bell… For Apple Pies

It’s not exactly Jean Valjean stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family, but on Monday night a trio of hungry robbers held up a Charlotte, NC, Taco Bell just to get some free food.

According to reports, the thee men rolled up to the drive-thru of the Taco Bell around 11:17 p.m. One of them pointed a gun at the cashier but made no demands for cash, just for some food.

The robbers must have had the munchies, because they weren’t even picky about the food. After the cashier handed them some fried apple pies, they pulled away from the bell… and made a run for the border?

This reminds us of two recent incidents where the robbers made off with edible booty, both from Domino’s. First, there was the robber who heisted $36 in wings from a driver. Then there was the delivery dude whose entire delivery of pizza and wings was stolen from him.
