Police: Burger King Worker Tried To Arrange Robbery At Her Own Store

From time to time a would-be robber gets the idea that the best way to get away with a bunch of cash is to steal from a place they know inside and out, like their current or former employer. A Pennsylvania Burger King employee apparently took that idea and made it her own by cooking up a plan to get someone else to rob the restaurant where she worked. 

The Observer-Reporter reports that a 23-year-old woman was arrested recently after soliciting a man and a woman to rob the Burger King restaurant where she was working at the drive-thru window.

According to local authorities, the former employee instructed the man and woman to stop by the restaurant at 10 p.m. on a night she was working. They were then allegedly told to wear masks, order something from the drive-thru and then rob her at the window.

But all the alleged scheming was for naught, as the robbery never took place. Instead, the two people who were solicited by the woman reported the plan to police.

The 23-year-old mastermind now faces solicitation charges for the attempted robbery.
